Meet the Facilitators

Laura Sani

"Coming from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, I consider myself a Muslim, born in Bulgaria. The university education, I acquired, is connected with Islamic theology, but that does not depict the full spectrum of my interests. I am fond of topics related to discrimination, religious dialogue, psychology and social inclusion. I believe that we should act as the change we would like to see in others and in our surrounding.”

Laura is currently majoring in Global Affairs (MA). She is a youth leader for BRIDGES CC.

Silvia Trifonova 

"My name is Silvia Trifonova. I am 19 years old and my hometown is Stara Zagora – the city of poets, lindens and straight streets.
Right now I’m studying Public Relations in Sofia’s university. I have been involved very passionately in environmental activities over the last few years and since 2018 I am the president of the Youth Parliament for Water in Bulgaria. It’s an organization whose mission is to inform and show young people the importance of water and its management and also to motivate them to participate in ecological actions. I am very proud of this position and at the same time I am fully aware of the great responsibility I carry. These days the problems with our planet has become topical and that’s why we - the young generation - must help solve them and prevent them from appearing in the future."
