I have several years' experience in working in Roma neighbourhoods on a daily basis. I have also participated in the policy-making process for Roma and Roma youth issues, from local to European levels. Among other experiences, I have also been a director of a local youth NGO and president of an international one - the Forum of European Roma Young People.
Since 1997, I have also been a trainer, and as such have worked mostly on: diversity and inclusion, participation, human rights, generic youth work and organisational management issues, training trainers, etc. I have implemented numerous training sessions with the Council of Europe, SALTO, National Agencies of the Youth in Action programme and various other international and local NGOs.
I am part of the Roma community and I live in Bulgaria. Some of the things that make me happy are: my family, my friends, and when I can see the difference that my work can make. I like many things...I believe in “all different, all equal”.
