Hello there, and welcome to So It Must Be True! :)

About this blog: In June 2010, I created So It Must Be True with the hope of sharing a few scattered thoughts with anyone who would listen. Four years later, this blog has become much more than that. So It Must Be True has essentially become the story of a young college-student-turned-college-grad learning about the world around her and discovering her own truths.

Read a few posts and you’ll quickly learn that everything inspires mefrom classic literature to crazy reality television – and I try to make connections between pop culture and real life. I like to sprinkle in a little humor when possible, and although I don’t generally write about the events that are currently taking place in my life, each post carries a piece of me with it. My readers have been incredibly supportive, and I am fortunate to hear from each of you.

Photo 108About Me: My name is Valerie Moses and I recently received my Bachelor of Arts in Advertising & Public Relations, along with a minor in Hospitality Management. I love learning about brand development and how companies communicate with their target audiences, and I am blessed to have the opportunity to combine my passion for writing with my love for event planning.

In May 2013, I began my big-girl job as a marketing professional in the financial services industry, and it has been a dream come true! In the past, I have interned in public relations, written freelance for a local paper and worked as an undergraduate career counselor. My writing has been featured in The South Florida Sun Sentinel’s Teenlink, Insight Magazine, Florida MD, Career Camel, and Talent Cupboard (so far!). Samples are listed on my Portfolio page. :)

Graduation28Looking For a Writer? I am always looking for new adventures and opportunities in writing, so please visit my Contact page if you’re looking for a writer or guest blogger! I can also be reached at vmoses90@gmail.com.

On a Personal Note: My celebrity idol/style icon is Audrey Hepburn. I enjoy watching historical documentaries (nerd alert!), wandering around Pinterest, taking pictures and attempting new recipes/not burning down the kitchen. I also love traveling and creating my own itineraries — I’m definitely a planner! I’m an INTJ/INFJ depending on the day of the week, and I’m always up for some bad reality TV.

    1. I just looked at their site and it looks amazing! Unfortunately I don’t know if I’d be able to get an application in on time by the 31st (tomorrow). Do they hire by semester or just in the fall? Because if they do it by semester then I could always try for the spring!

  1. Hey Vel,
    Seems like we are of same age, but you are far more smarter than me. I do not write much but seriously loved your writing and more than that your schedule to write. Nice to know this. By the way are you in UFL, gainsville. I am also thinking to join it next year as a graduate student.
    Here’s my blog

    1. Awww thank you so much! I do not attend UF… I considered it briefly but found my home somewhere else. Plenty of my friends go there and love it, though– I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

      Thanks for all of your feedback. I will definitely check out your blog!

    1. Thank you so much! : ) I’m really excited about that… it came as a total shock to me but I was just so thrilled to see it. I really appreciate your comment!

  2. I just found your blog via Freshly Pressed – congrats for making it on, by the by! I will definitely be back to visit :) I graduated from FSU in 2009 and I can relate so much to a lot of what you say – especially the part about being soul mates with your major! :)

    1. Thank you so much! :) It’s so great to find something you love. I started college as a journalism major who knew she didn’t want to be a journalism major, and it really wasn’t fun introducing myself as that. A couple months later after some soul searching and a trip to Career Services, I landed on Advertising/Public Relations, and I couldn’t be happier! What did you major in? It’s nice to meet another student in Florida!

  3. That’s so interesting… it’s so great to find something you’re passionate about. I’ve never met someone who studies that but that is really really cool!

  4. awesome blog….. im your age and also love writing….. my blog is a baby-step in that direction, congratulations 4 making it to freshly-pressed. :)

    1. Thank you so much! I’m only just starting but I love blogging and I can’t wait to get even more involved with it. I’ll have to check your blog out! Thank you :)

  5. Hi Val :) You checked out one of my post on my blog and left a comment….so here I am in “your house” and what a GREAT HOUSE IT IS!!! I love your blog…Keep up the great work!!!!

  6. I loveee your blog! I was just wondering if you attend FSU, because that would be amazing! I’m a freshman there right now. Please continue this blog; its been helping me adjust to college life. (:

    1. Thank you so much Stephanie! :) I actually attend UCF, but small world! I know a lot of people at FSU but I have only been up there once. Congratulations on starting college and best of luck in the next four years!

      I’m glad you’ve found my blog helpful. It makes me so happy to hear that! I will be posting a Freshman 15 in the coming week so stay tuned! Thank you so much for reading and commenting!
