Welcome to my blog! My name is Allie Schauer, and I’m a history loving teen growing up in suburban Texas. I’m currently a senior in high school, and I’m hoping to study history in college in order to then pursue a degree in law. I love talking about politics and history, my dogs, and music, so we’ll see if and how those topics coexist. This is my first time blogging, bear with me and
hopefully we’ll figure this out together!
You may be wondering about the title of this blog. Audiēmur is Latin for “we will be heard,” a phrase which to me represents both a goal and a promise. Change doesn’t happen by chance. You have to work for what you want changed, you have to be heard. And that doesn’t mean just shouting at the next person who will listen. Being heard can mean advocacy, volunteering, protest, petitions, boycotts, letters, podcasts, blogs – being heard is about effectively standing up for what you believe in.
This blog will follow my adventures in learning about and understanding history and politics, realms where using your voice is a necessity. I’ll focus on American aspects of both, but don’t be surprised when we talk global. I would love for you to comment with your opinions on different topics as often as you see fit; that’s how this whole political thing functions.
In short, thank you for checking out my blog, and remember to be heard!
