Anjela values working in a team, which is united around a long term goal and determined to reach it. She is pleased to be able to work in exactly such a team in Teach for Bulgaria.

In 2018, Anjela received Forbes Bulgaria’s award in the Education Category of the 30 under 30 ranking for young leaders for her dedicated work for sustainable ties and engagement between education and business in support of equal access to quality education for every child.
