About me

Hello! I'm Odyssa, a writer from Manila, Philippines. I'm the author of Like A New Sun Rising: A Collection of Poems on Love. I write poetry and personal essays. 

Writing started as a hobby when I was a child. I discovered reading fiction and non-fiction when I was 11 years old and my love for writing grew even more. In 2019, I discovered Medium and wrote articles about relationships, books, yoga and living simply. My posts have been read over 50,000 times since then. 


My work has been featured in The Good Men Project and GirlTellMe. I've written content for DoYou Yoga and the now-defunct online magazine What's Up BGC. Here are some of the articles:

I enjoy going on nature dates to treat myself. I'm a student of Ashtanga Yoga and have been practicing in this tradition since January 2019. You may contact me here
