Daria Rose Smith is a website that encases the many facets of my innovative brain, from the blog to the YouTube channel that started it all, stationary & stickers in my Redbubble shop, and my services as a content writer.
I am a… Writer. Creative. Multi-passionate Innovator… I don’t fit under a label. Formally, I am a content writer at Lewis Communications in Birmingham, Alabama. On the side, I freelance various content writing and social media projects. I have written for Southern Living and serve as the social media strategist for Caveat Coffee. As a young professional, I am finding my niche in the wonderful world of content. I also create and sell original stickers on Redbubble.
I have a degree in public relations with minors in entrepreneurship & innovation and professional & technical writing. As an Atlanta native, I moved down South to attend Georgia Southern University and graduated in 2020 during the height of COVID-19. After graduation, I moved to Birmingham with my german shorthaired pointer, Gracie (Instagram, @graciegsp).
I’ve always had a passion for creating and cultivating authentic relationships. My love for writing led me to start this blog to complement my YouTube channel. Seven years ago, I began creating content on YouTube. This journey has taught me that vulnerability is essential to a life well-lived.
I find joy in the little things, as it doesn’t take much to make me smile. I love God and I love people. I believe that each and every one of us was created with a unique calling or “passion.” My mission is to connect with people and curate authentic relationships. When individuals express their passions, their eyes gleam and suddenly you’ve reached a new level of intimacy and understanding. I feel the Lord’s presence so much in these moments.
I have a niche for creating content and sharing it with the world. Because of this, I get to link with so many wonderful humans and organizations and hear the features of their lives. I’ve learned to embrace the chaos that is my life and accept that I’m never going to get my life “together.” That’s my brand and what’s you’ll discover on my little corner of the internet. Follow along to join the coordinated chaos.
At a young age, I developed a resilient drive to thrive and achieve my goals. But, I struggled to complete simple tasks. In college, I was diagnosed with ADHD and OCD. This doesn’t inhibit success but does mean that my brain functions differently. I attribute these “disorders” to my drive for success and innovation.
Growing up, I never “fit the mold.” I color outside the lines (literally). I function at one hundred miles per hour, in one hundred different directions. I like things neat and organized, I work ahead. My brain thrives on color-coding, schedules, to-do lists, calendars, and deadlines. I am constantly thinking of new ideas and which one I’m going to tackle next. In everything I do, I pursue things head-on and to my best ability. I don’t stop until I’ve achieved perfection. I am a workaholic, but I am learning balance. I am learning to give myself grace.
Things that make me smile: Charleston SC, green smoothies, sunflowers, coffee, my bible, nature, “farmhouse” interiors, Target, J. Crew, snail mail, hand-lettering, avocado toast, Alan Jackson, riding dirt roads, the list goes on… the little things.
