Introducing this year's awardee: Atanas Genkov from Bulgaria
I come from Bulgaria, where I grew up in a healthy balance of modern city life, ancient rural traditions and enchanting wildlife. I have a Bachelor degree in Computer Sciences and I did an internship in the e-learning business in Toronto, Canada. Meanwhile, I volunteered actively for AIESEC and further discovered the world and my leadership potential in various roles, including leading the organisation at national level.
Once back home, I took another path, as a free-lance trainer in the NGO sector and for three years I developed and delivered training courses all over Europe.
I joined the MSLS community with the intention to integrate sustainability in my training courses, educate and inspire more and more young people to work together as a community towards a sustainable world of Peace, Harmony, Love and Joy.
My impressions so far are extremely positive - the program exceeds any expectations I had, I love the variety of topics covered in such a short time, the inspirational lecturers, the diversity in the class and the richness of experiences and community spirit.
