Welcome to rebelbeard.com! This blog is a place where I like to share my thoughts and musings of the world.
My name is Valdet Selimaj and I am originally from New York, but now reside in Detroit, MI. I am first generation American. My family comes from Kosovo.
My personal interests include writing, social media, fitness, traveling, and my amazing nephew. As a person with ADHD, it is tough for me to focus on anything for too long, but writing has always been that one consistent thing that I have loved doing and is totally my passion.
Travel is also something that I have loved doing. There is always a charge of energy when I visit a new country or even US city. I love different cultures and am a huge fan of learning new languages. I know English, Albanian, some German, and even less Spanish.
Professionally, I have worked in the mortgage industry for almost decade and have done many things from defaulted loans to Servicing training. I am currently a Senior Leadership Trainer. I am certified in Instructor Led Training, teaching English as a second language (TEFL), and DISC Communication training.
Two things you will very learn very quickly about me is that I am a very free-spirited person who loves to travel and I also love having a beard! I am also a bit of rebel when it comes to authority or social constraints and the suffocation of freedom, individuality and/or creativity. This blog is to help break down those shitty constraints and to start some needed conversations.
This blog will cover any topic I fucking feel like writing about, so you can expect a broad range of posts. What you shouldn’t expect from me is to shy away from topics that are considered “taboo.” Those are my favorite!
