Hi! I'm Boris and I appreciate diversity in all its forms! While based in Bulgaria, I have lived for 8 years in Germany and France and had the chance to visit a few other countries around the globe. I'm driven by my curiosity for people, places, cultures, tastes, ways of life... and let it lead the way forward :)
And I am big fan of volunteering! For me, it's the best opportunity to learn something new, support a good cause and meet inspiring people. All key ingredients for personal fulfillment and growth. Indeed, I feel most alive when I expand my perception of self and the world, when I get to experience the versatility of life first-hand and when I exchange ideas and insights with others.
I have a quite diverse work experience in both formal and non-formal settings, predominantly in the fields of education, consulting and personal guidance. Self-development and volunteering have helped me add a few more skills that you can see below.
x My personal characteristics (defined via introspection and external feedback): curiosity; patience; diplomacy; organization; creativity; open-mindedness; respect for others
x My professional abilities (through education and work): psychology (university degree); active listening and guidance; career orientation; management consulting; strategic marketing (university degree); some Photoshop
x My volunteering experience (in 10+ different projects outside Workaway): mentorship; event organization; vegetarian/vegan cooking; guest welcome and information; general maintenance; some light-weight construction work; some gardening (saffron / mandala / permaculture)
x Additional insights (from my hobbies and interests): Human Design; Gene Keys; Taoist methods; spirituality; energy practices; healthy food preparation
Since some time, I am interested in systems and tools that promote deeper self-understanding and would love to exchange ideas about that.
Different cultures, customs and cuisine intrigue me on both professional and personal level, so I am always open to learning something new in this regard.
I also like to engage in physical activities of all sorts including sports, gymnastics, Yoga, Qi-Gong and Biodanza.
