Who is   Mandirose

 

Growing up, I've always gone against the grain. It was everywhere from: I didn't like to play with dolls, to not liking the colors pink and red. I felt like it put me in the box of "being a girl". At a young age I recognized and challenged gender norms. It didn't stop there though, I was consciously aware of racism. My Father can even point at times that I would call it out in stores. At such a young age I fully didn't understand what was going on in society and why Gender Norms and Racism even exist. I came from a household that my Father taught me how to plaster walls and take care of my car, my Mother has passed down some of her recipes and strength. I lived in a mixed community and had friends from all cultural backgrounds. When we are young we don't understand that our environment isn't everyone else's environment. As I grew older and started seeing the inequality in the world, is when I became passionate about spreading awareness and making changes. 

I am a Sociologist at heart, I have my Sociology degree from Oregon State (Go Beav's), where I also studied Women and Gender Studies. I am a FEMINIST, ACTIVIST, and CREATOR. The F word scares a lot of people but I believe in equality of the sexes, no one sex is better than the other, but we are different. However, I am passionate that men get treated equal as well, and we do not put aside their needs and wants. I have marched in The Women's March, Black Lives Matter Marches, and Pride.

 

I have worked Non-Profit my whole career, organized and host multiple fundraisers, held donation drives for the unsheltered, and Christmas toy drives.

 

BrunchTalks was created to help continue this passion. I wanted to create a platform to spread awareness, educate on ways to change the inequalities, and help people spread their stories. We all have stories and from what I have learned, if these stories and experiences I am sharing on BrunchTalks touch at least one person and makes them question what they have only known to be true, then my purpose of BrunchTalks has been achieved. 

 I might say things that offend you, or make you uncomfortable, but we don't grow if we stay in our comfort zone. Join me on BrunchTalks, a community for those who want to share, listen, and learn. We all come from different walks of life and have a story, this is MY Story and MY Journey in helping society connect, advocate, and grow.

Our Vision

BrunchTalks Vision is to bring the community together. We want to build a society that the next generation won't have to go thru what we did. A society were you on hired on talent, not what you look like. One they will be proud to be a part of. Let's connect, share, build, and create.
