My Name is Rhonda Nemri, and I am the creator of this blog. I have had this blog since February 2012. I was inspired to create this blog while I was attending Graduate School. Now that I am a professional in academia, I am still inspired to continue to write on this blog. My topics have shifted a bit, but still have the main point, and that is to give a voice to the voiceless.
I have taught in the communication field for over 7 years in Higher Education, and I am currently an Academic Advisor for the Communication and Creative Arts department at Purdue Northwest (PNW has no affiliation with this blog). I have taught courses in speech communication, interpersonal communication, workplace communication, public debate, interviewing principles, and communication research methods. I also have professional experience with in the public relations field. My passion is to mentor individuals, as I feel mentoring is highly needed as guidance and support for those who may not find it easy to navigate through their college or professional career. Even successful individuals use mentors to help guide them through difficulties, or to simply offer suggestions from a different standpoint.
Although my blog is called feministtalk, and has firstly focused on women and the feminist theories. This blog also provides insight in childhood, culture, family, poetry and creative writing, higher education, technology, mental illness, death and grieving, and motivational writing. I am not claiming I am an expert in all of these topics, but simply someone that has educational, and life experiences to share. My perspectives have definitely changed from when I was a student in the graduate program, but I hold a lot of the main focuses of what it means to be a feminist. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comment on posts that spark an interest, or just simply like or share posts.
