Student Profile

                Nina Rondon profile picture

My name is Nina and I am an undergraduate here at Syracuse University double majoring in religion with writing and rhetoric.  Coming from Brooklyn, New York, I've always had a close relationship to religion as my family firmly practiced and maintained Christian values my whole life.  The Religion Department here at Syracuse has not only shaped and transformed my ideas and perceptions of religion in society and how it functions, but also psychological, sociological, and theoretical frameworks of religions in various cultural settings.  Aspiring to attend Graduate school to study religion, feminism, and non-fiction writing, I am currently working on my McNair research project which looks at the self-development process of self-identified Christian women throughout their college career.  Continuing to combine my majors in religion and writing, I hope to some day create a program and safe space where adolescents are able to freely write and talk about their ideologies and life experiences.  I also want to continue to intertwine the interdisciplinary studies of religion, feminism, and writing to empower and captivate women to appreciate and value who they are as well as develop their own understanding of their ideological perspectives.
