The ODYSSEY Media Group is 60-person media organization at Clarke Central High School here in Athens, Georgia comprised of a newsmagazine website, a literary art magazine and a broadcast program. Currently, the ODYSSEY Media Group distributes their magazine to 1,500+ students, parents, employees and Athens community members. We will be expanding the ODYSSEY Media Group’s online presence into a mobile app in order to grow their readership and better serve their readers
We wanted to make a user-friendly, clutter-free and engaging app for the Odyssey Media Group. This would incorporate elements such as livestream, shareability, recent posts and tiplines.

" As project manager, I am responsible for keeping our project on track to ship by the end of the semester by ensuring that we work together effectively and efficiently as a team. I will take the lead on organization by prompting our own “checkpoints” throughout each piece of the project and encouraging collaboration and sharing of progress."
"This semester I have strengthened my knowledge in coding and software development, adding new langauges to my resume. The tasks at hand were incredibly challenging, yet rewarding."
In my time working with ODYSSEY, I will use these skillsets to work with my team to create a functional app with a utilitarian aesthetic and streamlined UI in order to make ODYSSEY an even more viable news source for their increasingly mobile audience.
As the presenter, I will present our class presentations and final presentation. As a Communication Studies minor, I am very comfortable communicating ideas, and keeping the crowd engaged.
