Anjela is Head of Development and Fundraising at Teach For Bulgaria
Masters of Public Policy & BA in International Relations and European Studies from the University of Toronto. Access to quality education has definitively shaped my life trajectory, and I am thrilled to contribute to an organization, which provides such access to children from underprivileged backgrounds across Bulgaria. My previous professional experience has been in social science research, event planning, and stakeholder engagement. I’ve had the pleasure of working with education advocacy groups in Canada and Bulgaria, business associations, and academic bodies. Often working alongside motivated colleagues, I’ve researched and analysed environmental scans, interjurisdictional comparisons, and stakeholder maps, all feeding into strategic planning objectives and policy recommendations. My project-based work fueled my interest in organizational sustainability, and I’ve been fortunate to work for employers in the business, academic, and non-profit fields, who have entrusted me with evaluation of projects and planning follow-up strategies.
