My professional experience as journalist has been in all different types of media: TV, radio, web and 5 years as print journalist. I am strongly interested in diplomacy and human rights. In the summer of 2008 I participated in the Balkan Case Challenge International Competition, Vienna, in the Model European Council. I was awarded from this competition with the opportunity to participate in the International Civilian Peace-keeping and Peace-building Training Program (IPT). There I had gain basic knowledge in the field of peace building and making, human rights and conflict analysis. Furthermore in February 2010 I participated in the Minority rights workshop in the EURAC institute in Bolzano/Bozen, Italy. There I started my research connected with the Roma minority in Bulgaria. I presented the first results of my work with a Multimedia presentation “The Real life of Roma in Bulgaria” on the European Youth Media Convention, Berlin in April 2010.

Later in July I worked as a print journalist for the Orange magazine covering the XIII International AIDS conference in Vienna. In the end of October I was on the International youth journalistic conference “Meet me in Solidarity”, Maribor, Slovenia, dedicated to the European year for combating poverty and social exclusion. In November 2010 I was at the Fourth International Conference on Journalism and Information, Strasbourg, writing a special Orange magazine dedicated to minorities and social injustices.

In January 2011 I did my internship in Deutcshe Welle TV in Berlin, where I worked in the show Global 3000, dedicated to human rights and environmental issues. In March I was organizer on behalf of the European Youth Press for a workshop entitled “Migration in London”, addressing the social inclusion of young migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced persons in London (March 2011). Currently I am intern for the first private Bulgarian TV: bTV.
