As I took a step out into the world, I’ve found myself out in the deep end of a small town in Louisiana, Monroe to be exact. It was something about the sound that was intriguing enough to take a deeper look into. And then there she was. Trulia, as the curiosity led to wanting to know more of what exactly drives her motivation. Come with me as we explore more on what she has to say.

Trulia Monroe: I was actually at a friend’s house where there were kids and upon leaving a little girl tugged on her mom’s dress and asked her if I was Ms. Trulia. Her mom replied yes, and her eyes lit up as bright as the sun. The mom stopped me and asked her daughter to repeat what she said. I couldn’t do anything but smile and grab her little body for a huge hug.
