Being a part of ODI is truly an amazing experience. ODI creator Dolly Wolf truly makes ODI feel like a big family. I would have not found the courage to pursue my goals and climb over my mountains if it hadn’t been for my experience at ODI. The generous executives filled my hunger for the industry. I am fortunate to be a returning student who started at Northern Virginia Community College and am now at George Mason in the video and film department. Thanks to ODI I've had the amazing opportunity to make friends and network with students from different school in the country. I also need to say that Northern Virginia Community College and particularly the Alexandria Campus and Communication Studies there provided these rich opportunities. NOVA is a remarkable place and I am very grateful. “Being a part of a family is like branches that grow on a tree. We all grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one.” I’m truly grateful for being part of the ODI family, for Northern Virginia Community College and for George Mason University.
