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. My current role is leadership training and development. 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. It is time to challenge conventional thinking and wisdom.
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!
