Welcome to my blog. I am so glad that you stopped by.
My name is Anna LaRue and I was born and raised in Dade City, Florida. Growing up in a family of six, I quickly developed a love of being surrounded by people at a young age. With what seemed like constant visits from childhood friends, our home looked more like an extended-stay motel than a single-family dwelling at times.
This constant chaos of comings and goings became my “normal” and helped me to realize that working with people was something I was passionate about. Throughout my life, I also uncovered a true joy of writing. There was just something about sitting down and creatively communicating my thoughts through written words. Whether it was for an academic essay or personal expression, I really enjoyed writing and I felt as though it was something I excelled at.
When I began my freshman year at Auburn University in the fall of 2012, I had a rather hazy image of what I should be “when I grew up.” I was unsure if there could be a major that would blend my love of people and my love of writing into one. After completing 120 hours in the public relations curriculum, I can confidently say that it fits the aforementioned criterion.
I feel blessed to have found a major that encompasses both my passions and my strengths and I look forward to the road it will lead me down.
Outside of school, you can find me with a diet coke in hand updating my Pinterest boards, playing with my dog, Bo, or finding the new boutiques in town to help me consistently update my wardrobe.
I hope you like what you find.
