Admissions Counselor

     

Alma Mater: 
Richmond, the American International University in London

Has been working for AUBG since
2016

Why did you decide to work at AUBG?
I am a huge fan of the American style of higher education and the skills it shapes. I worked as a School Counselor until 2016 and I was actively involved with the university application process of high school students. I witnessed first-hand the positive academic, social and personal impact AUBG had on those who decided to join it. Then faith and opportunity came together and bam! I became part of this great AUBG experience!

Favorite AUBG memory: 
That's a tough one. I have great memories. Maybe one of the most exciting moments was seeing Mina Dobreva (‘18) – my former student from the school where I was a School Counselor and a current AUBG student at the time– do a great job as part of the TEDxAUBG Conference! I was really proud of her! Inspired even.  

Best part of your job: 
Meeting young people and helping them find the best option for themselves. And once they become part of AUBG to see how happy they are with the choice they have made. Also the team I work with - how lucky am I?

Tips for college: 
If you are a high school student, be curious and don't be afraid to ask questions. Be open to new opportunities and try to challenge yourself by stepping outside your comfort zone once in a while. School is actually a lot of fun, but what you can create for yourself during your university years will be a game changer. The best is yet to come for you.

What do you do in your free time? 
Ha-ha, do I have enough space to talk about that? I try to accommodate my crazy passion for decoupage in my weekly routine. I am deeply in love with the beauty of old wooden objects.
