In the third year of the start-up period of tekom Bulgaria and as a IC member, my motivation is to help meet tekom’s criteria for becoming a fully operational country organization that serves our expanding community. A significant part to this is to show the value and potential of our profession at career fairs and drive the community growth. Furthermore, I want to ensure we have leaders spread in the entire community, beyond its IC.

I am part of tekom Bulgaria, because I believe that to have a community of like-minded people, you must work at it. I am here to co-op and co-learn, so that we can enjoy who we are professionally together.

I strongly believe in the huge potential for development of our profession in Bulgaria. My mission as an IC member is to promote technical writing and help establish our community as a known brand of technical communication in the country. To do so, I am dedicated to the 2017 ROADSHOW activities that will help us reach out to:

  • Universities, academic communities, and teachers who can help us establish a dedicated specialty in Bulgaria.
  • Local IT communities that will help us attract a greater number of students and young people.
  • Businesses that will help us draw further attention on the importance of what we do.
