Odetta is the author of the poetic work, Ode To America, a prophetic response to America's debilitating cultural norms as it relates to irreparable relationships, broken systems, racial inequality and a rabid, consumptive culture. Odetta was born and raised outside of the U.S. until age 12, when she immigrated with her parents and her older brother and sister.
She completed her college education in psychology and went on to pursue a Master of Arts degree in Forensic Psychology. She worked for several years in various capacities and locations as a mental health clinician. She enjoys fashion, music, art and theatre, as well as various outdoor activities.
Odetta dedicates herself to helping her family and others achieve a satisfying existence through faith, worship, and personal achievements. She is pleased with this first book and she continues to challenge herself and her community to expand the horizon so that all can live an agreeable life.
