What is the best thing that I love about my work?
Thinking about it, maybe they are three things, which I love the most.
The feeling I get when I see the results of my efforts. When I see the satisfaction, the joy, the admiration, the happiness of the people i‘m doing this for. After a lot of hard work and often very sleepless nights in the final there is an indescribable emotion.
The freedom to create something unique and very meaningful.
The variety and dynamics of the workflow and communication I lead to realize the different projects.
What is my idea of perfect happiness?
The moment you see the joy of someone and you know that the reason for that is because you did something for them.
Or shared moments. When you enjoy something beautiful, like sunset, and you share this moment with a favorite person.
What is my greatest fear?
Probably like many other people – the fear of making a mistake and the consequences that mistake might bring.
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself?
The lack of confidence and the will to stand your ground.
What is my greatest extravagance?
My emotionality, but the physical level Probably the fire in my eyes.
On what occasion would I lie?
I can not and I do not like to lie, but there are situations in which it is better not to tell the truth. Then I just prefer to say nothing than to say a lie.
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work?
Making offers. When to talk about money. I love to be useful and it is very difficult for me to appreciate my efforts. I love to give, not to want. But this is part of the work, and to be successful, there must be funding for what we do.
When and where was I the happiest, in my work?
When I saw the happiness of the winner “Reporter’s Workshop 2017”. His eyes were shining so bright, he jumped out of joy, when I said his name. He came to me and hugged me so hard. And the moment, when my teacher was holding my hand and with tears in her eyes, thanked me what I did for the children.
I have created and developed for the third year in a row a social cause “Reporter’s Workshop”, where we work with students in the upper course. They go through a training-competition for creative and professional writing.
Award ceremonies are the most emotional and happy moments.
If I could, what would I change about myself?
I wish I had not been so hesitant.
What is my greatest achievement in work?
Perhaps changing destinies. Discover the potential of a talented child, give him confidence and give him opportunities for development, contacts, and an environment for improvement. There is already a boy who chose to study and develop in Bulgaria, although he had planned and accepted to study abroad. I deeply believe we will be proud of his future fame.
Where would I most like to live?
love the place I live in. A small town called Bozhurishte, which is very close to the capital Sofia, and so far away from the noise and dynamics of the big city.
What is my most treasured possession?
My emotionality. I do everything with a lot of enthusiasm and I put on emotion, which gives very different value to each project. As people say when doing something with passion, it is always successful.
What is my most marked characteristic?
Hmm. Maybe I should ask someone. They told me that I always smiled
What is my most inspirational location, in my city?
The library in the city center. The Baroque style and a lot of history. Years ago, when the airport in Bozhurishte (the first in Bulgaria) was functioning and there were many pilots and soldiers in the village, there were balls in the library hall, then there was a casino. Today there are concerts for all the celebrations, rehearsals of various types of dancing, singing, painting, musical instruments and so on. And this is the place where all the students can go there and read a book.
What is my favourite place to eat and drink, in my city?
Bozhurishte does not have many dining options. The best thing to do when you live in such a place is that there are many beautiful places near by which you can even reach by bike and have a picnic on the meadow by the river or forest.
What books influenced my life and how?
I love reading novels telling about beautiful places, love, recipes with spices that give a sense of color, aroma, inspiration … from which you can fill yourself with romance, ideas for preparing or experiencing something different, pleasant and original.
