  • Denica Yotova
    Denica Yotova PR

    If I had to choose one word that defines me, that would be faith. Belief in the impeccable balance of the universe and in the abundance of possibilities to creatively provoke it. As someone interested in international relations and the global political processes, I decided to try many different careers before I made my choice. This is how I acquired experience in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
    After many adventures around the world, I decided to come back to Bulgaria in the summer of 2015 and ABLE was key to my decision to stay here: I served as an Organizational leader at first, and now I am happy to be part of the Executive Board.
