  1. Veronika Georgieva ’98: On Life in Japan

    August 1, 2016 by American College of Sofia

    The most beautiful places in Japan are the parks in March when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. Walking, surrounded by hundreds of white trees, watching the petals fall like snow and make a white carpet on the floor is the most beautiful scene I have seen here.

  2. Kalina Manova ’98: The Wonders and Wanders of Life after ACS

    March 23, 2016 by American College of Sofia

    I believe that discovering one’s true passion is the first step to being happy – the second its pursuit. ACS gave me the opportunity to try on a different hat every day. I remember the long afternoons and occasional nights of editorial work on College Life, the endless folk-dance rehearsals, the impossibility of learning “The Jabberwocky” for Alice in Wonderland, the math competitions, and the volunteering in local schools. Sure, there were organizational flops, money hick-ups and make-up messes. But I remember only the fun and excitement (and proper dose of embarrassment!) of finally seeing the newspaper in print or performing on stage.

  3. Kathryn van Steyn: Live Simply and Passionately!

    February 9, 2016 by American College of Sofia

    Life should be all about fun. And some of the happiest people I’ve ever encountered were in a poor, small village in Nepal, so it is more of a state of being than anything else. I derive my happiness from the outdoors.

    I distinctly remember a night. It must have been May in my senior year. The weather was great outside but we were sitting in preparing ourselves for the matriculation exams in the basement of today’s Science Building, I believe. There was a net on the window and whole waves of May-bugs were flying against the net. I still remember that sound and our longing to be outside in the splendid night with its dark sky and sparkling stars.

  5. Nora Pencheva ’05: On Finding a Fascinating Career Path

    January 21, 2016 by American College of Sofia

    At the Netherlands Cancer Institute, where the research unit is within the main hospital, I get to see cancer patients in the hallways every day and that makes it all feel very real. If anything, it gives me another level of motivation as well as the responsibility to keep working hard.
