Our fabulous world is one microscopic speck in the gigantic universe, but it provides boundless opportunities for life changing experiences.

Having been born in Bulgaria and raised in the US, I flew on my first international flight when I was only 8 months old. Since then, I crossed the Atlantic every summer and in the process developed a habit and fascination with travel. In my subsequent journeys around the world I’ve discovered that no places are the same and that everything is in a constant state of change. As a result, I enjoy returning to previously visited destinations with more experience to uncover changes and new experiences. In an increasingly globalized world, I believe it’s imperative that everyone is open to becoming global citizens. I believe it’s through genuine human-to-human interactions and cross-cultural exchanges with people different from ourselves that we can begin healing our increasingly divided world. It’s through these exchanges that I have been fortunate to develop an appreciation for differences in mindset and to realize that there are many ways to approach life, none of which is the sole “right way.” I hope to continue deepening my cross-cultural understandings and contributing to a more positive world for all. #understanding
