Desiree Tolentino is the definition of the word “odd”, but for all the right reasons. Desiree is a Horchata-obsessed, classic-rock-loving, confidently tattooed, hopeless romantic writer and journalist in her early twenties. Her joys include: smiling too much, laughing too loud, and being the biggest optimist she can be. Desiree does her best to give her best in every avenue that she embarks on in her life, but it wasn’t always sunshine and peach tea…

In 2015, Desiree Tolentino had hit a plateau in her life. She had lost all of her passion in the field she was in. She was focused on financial burdens, a potential in declining health, and getting by to survive on the bare minimum that she had let go of all creativity she had once before. Desiree was sinking lower and lower into deep sadness, depression, and lack of self-esteem. Where did the joyful, fun-loving Desiree go? All the hope she had seemed to be passing like the seasons, and for no good reason. She knew she had a choice to make.  She knew that if she didn’t do whatever she could to fight her inner battles and go back to focusing on spreading love and positivity, she would whither away in the most devastating way: monotony. Doing her best to regain confidence within herself and remembering what her life was meant to be, Desiree gathered herself together and began to imagine a business that focused on spreading love, creativity, and acceptance of all people. And so she did just that and created Oddity & Company.
