Thanks for visiting my WordPress site. My name is Nicki Karimipour and I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Florida. I received my master’s degree from UF and my bachelor’s degrees from Florida State University.
My background in journalism began officially in high school, where I was the editor of the newspaper for two years. I have always loved to write, and began doing so at an early age. I loved reading stories until I figured out how I could tell them. Throughout college, I worked in editor positions at FSU’s newspaper, The FSView & Florida Flambeau. I loved writing and editing for the arts & life section (because it’s the most fun!).
When I’m not conducting research, I am teaching. For two years, I’ve been teaching JOU3109, Multimedia Writing, a required course for undergraduate journalism and PR majors. Teaching is something that I enjoy because it is rewarding to help people and be responsible for teaching them new skills.
