    June 25, 2019 by American College of Sofia

    “Some people probably remember me as the kid who would always be drawing cars in his notebooks, instead of paying attention in class.” (laughs)

  3. Teodora Dimova: Let Us Be Like Children!

    June 5, 2019 by American College of Sofia

    Being like children comes to a person as naturally as eating when hungry, drinking water when thirsty. Children have the natural, innate knowledge that death is not the end, and so they do not fear it, do not fear animals, do not fear people. They feel trust towards all men. They do not care if these men are rich or poor, handsome or ugly, do not notice their wrinkles or age.

  4. Теодора Димова: Да бъдем като децата!

    June 5, 2019 by American College of Sofia

    Да бъдем като децата е така естествено за човека, както да яде, когато е гладен, да пие вода, когато е жаден. Децата имат естественото, вроденото знание, че смъртта не е краят, затова и не се страхуват от нея, не се страхуват от животните, не се страхуват от хората. Изпитват доверие във всеки човек. Не се интересуват богат ли или беден, красив ли е или грозен, не забелязват нито бръчките, нито старостта му.

  5. Vanya Angelova: To Become a Teacher, You Need a Big Heart

    January 8, 2019 by American College of Sofia

    I chose Physics because it’s a big challenge. You have to have confidence still, a desire to learn, you have to be curious, to have an imagination.

  6. Vladimir Gospodinov ’18 and the Stars in the Night Sky

    August 6, 2018 by American College of Sofia

    I don’t think you can ever be truly happy if you don’t love yourself.

  7. Ivan Ivanov ’18: You Cannot Compare a Medal to Making Someone Feel Proud of You

    June 18, 2018 by American College of Sofia

    If something doesn’t go the way you hoped it doesn’t mean it’s going wrong, it just means it should have taken another direction.

  8. Theodora Konetsovska ’97: Keep Your Accent and Your Last Name!

    June 14, 2018 by American College of Sofia

    Be brave. When you wonder if to do or not, do. If you question whether to go or not, go. When you hesitate if you should speak up or not, speak. Explore, jump in, have an opinion, disagree, defend your beliefs. Now is the time to challenge, experiment, figure out where you stand and where you want to go.

  9. ACS Trustees Ann Ferren and Avis Bohlen – Two Harvard-Radcliffe Alumnae at Lamont

    March 8, 2018 by American College of Sofia

    Harvard in those years was definitely the richer, more privileged institution; Radcliffe the poor relation. The boys’ accommodations in the Harvard houses were much nicer and more spacious than our shoe-box rooms in the Radcliffe dorms. We had to wait on tables and clean our own rooms; no work was required of the boys.

  10. Георги Шопов – пазителят на историята на рода Чакалови

    February 19, 2018 by American College of Sofia

    „Някои нравствени категории бяха много по-задължителни за учениците от колежа, отколкото за връстниците им от другите училища на страната. Нека вземем за пример така нареченото преписване по време на класни писмени упражнения и изпити. За нашите американски учители дори името на това явление беше друго: наричаха го не „copy”, a „cheat”  т. е. „измама“. Нещо повече: наказанието за таква простъпка беше автоматично изключване от колежа. Подобна измама се считаше за непростимо престъпление, което не можеше да се търпи в никаква степен.”
