Mila is one the first mentors, who participated in ABLE Mentor when the program started in 2014. After the end of Season 1, she gladly accepted the invitation to join the organizational team, because she shares the values the project is based on.
Mila has a Masters degree in Architecture and spent 10 years working on projects in Europe and the USA. Along with the studio she worked at, she has got awards and nominations from prestigious institutions as Building of the Year (Bulgaria), BIG SEE (Slovenia), Architizer (USA) and Mies van der Rohe (EU Prize for Contemporary Architecture).
For many years, Mila would share her time between her job as an Architect and volunteering for ABLE Mentor, before deciding to fully dive into the world of informal education and mentorship. She took the Project Lead role in the beginning of 2022, bringing her project management and leadership skills to her new position.
Mila believes that paying it forward to the next generation by sharing your knowledge, experience or simply being there for them, gives ABLE Mentor’s students a solid ground to step on, grow and reach new heights. The skillset young people develop by participating in the program is critical for their future goals and Mila is proud to be a part of their journey.
