"Hello, lovely people, it’s me - Alexandra Chobanova. I feel so lucky to be able to call myself a JC at GLOW LA, especially after being a camper in 2020. I’m currently a student at PPMG “Academic Ivan Cenov” Vratsa, even though I was born in Burgas and love the sea and Petya Dubarova’s poetry. During quarantine I started getting into translating, which is why I’m very happy with this task. Lately, I’ve been writing a lot and I accidentally became an empty pen collector- perhaps I’ll make a sculpture out of them one day! "

Camper,
2009

Hello, my name is Margita Kolcheva or also known as small Magy and I was a camper during the 2009 edition of LA GLOW. Currently, I am GLOW's PR (Public Relations) Director, which means being responsible for the logistics behind the marketing side of GLOW and mainly the website, the online shop, the media accounts and GLOW’s relationships with other organisations and institutions. Outside of GLOW, I work for a food and beverage company and am responsible for the continuous improvement of processes. When it comes to facts about me: I am interested in the topics of diversity and inclusion. I am emotionally attached to my beautiful notebooks where I usually write my GLOW ideas and plans or my notes for the webinars I lead. Being able to cite the lyrics of different songs and rhymed children stories is my specialty.

Hi there, I'm Neda Shishmanova and currently a Social Media and Marketing Assistant for GLOW. I'm studying Aquaculture in the University of Stirling, while working and exploring the beautiful Scottish nature around me. I'm in love with the simple things in life, such as blanket scarves, gardens and making my friends laugh. I love keeping myself busy and shuffling different tasks, while also taking care of myself, my mind and my physical health. I was a camper in 2015 and have been involved with GLOW ever since, as I simply can't get enough inspiration and knowledge from all the amazing people involved with this exciting work!

Hi everyone - my name is Seda Radoykova. I was a camper in 2016, returned as a JC the following year, and am currently on the Sustainability team of GLOW. In my 'free' time I play the guitar, daydream of adopting a dog - maybe 8 - cook, and learn new things from all walks of life. In my 'not so free' time I am on the crossroad between cell and computational biology which I am pursuing at UCL. I'd like to think that my defining feature is being driven by ubiquitous curiousity for everything there is to know. I am passionate about diversity and education, so I stive to share their virtue far and wide.
