Before becoming a writer for this website, I dreamed of the day I could pick up and leave the “boring” state of Texas and move somewhere more exciting. But now, after realizing how great a place our state truly is, there’s no place I’d rather be and I never plan on leaving. These are the reasons why I’m a Texan at heart, loud and proud.
Why will Texas always hold a special place in YOUR heart?
Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and changed her major twice (psychology, computer science, and finally criminal justice) before taking a leap of faith and dropping out to pursue a career in freelance writing.
Today, Katie writes for the Texas and Arizona pages of OnlyInYourState.com and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on the sofa with a hot cup of coffee, watching a crime TV show or scary movie.
