Additional services:

Mentoring of young women with multicultural background and support with their career development.

Sometimes I get the chance to work in schools or universities, I love to see young people growing their skills and I´m happy to share my knowledge and experience. It gives me a feeling of doing a purposeful work.

“Growing up bi-culturally in Bulgaria and Germany I learned to de-code culture in early teenage years without knowing the terms or models for cross-cultural comparison. Later during my university studies I learned about all the theories, so finally I had a tag for what I´ve experienced so far. Working in a multinational corporation enhanced the multicultural experience by delivering trainings internationally and working in multicultural teams. The expat stay in Sydney, Australia had further impact on my identity as a cosmopolitan person shifting between identities – during this period I got to know the concept of Third culture kids (TCK) and was fascinated by the book. As a trainer working in international environment I feel I can draw so much from life experience – examples come so easy, not from the books but based on personal stories.”
