She has been involved in training of children and adults since 1999. She is one of the founders of the Environmental Association “Za Zemiata” and a longtime instructor at Outward Bound Bulgaria, because she likes to work with people and seek new approaches. “Social change starts from within and then you can’t stop, you just have to act on it”
The trust in the power of the “problem environment” to be an incubator for unique social innovation is the air that I breathe and the water that I swim in. I’m probably addicted to the radical thesis that the course of our human evolution depends on the unleashing of the creative potential. And maybe now is the exact time to redefine the word “development” and to orient it towards human happiness. I work as a “catalyst” and a „fuel” for small ideas and imaginative people with extraordinary potential for social change. I’m a strategic communicator by profession, a lover of shared visions, lecturer, trainer, blogger and traveler. Co-founder of Ideas Factory, as well as others similar crazies like the Time Shop and Changemakers Academy. In my pocket I always wear … a red clown nose.
I move natural objects and subjects through their global growth with the help of natural materials. I like to feel useful to the world, so it could be and look happier and beautiful in the eyes of those who will appreciate it and Ideas Factory is the key to such a world.
I believe that learning is a never ending story. For my 10 years of working and volunteering experience I have gone through a variety of spheres – from veterinary medicine, multilevel marketing, volunteers manager, sustainable development, through traveling and non-formal education to being a fabricator. The main motive in my life is nature – as whole and human nature in particular – and the restoration of the human-nature and human-human connection. The knowledge about the choices we make in life and their impact is the link that I am looking for. That’s why I am part of Ideas Factory – for sharing and learning, which simultaneously in themselves fecundity and joy and at the same time are means to achieve satisfaction.
Searching for the source of most of our problems, I keep on realizing that the reason lies in human mentality. The way our brains are functioning is our strongest characteristic and our weakest link. It seems to me, that there is a wrong system of values, integrated in the modern societies, which needs to be changed and that is why I will always support Ideas Factory. I love my friends, nature, music, beauty, yoga, good food, traveling around the bright world and ,even though working for a corporation, every day I smile and try to have fun, run away from stereotypes,be creative and challenge the goodness in each and everyone of us.
