On the role of childhood and on our role in it. Are there impossible things for young people from the Roma community in Bulgaria? Yordanka Yordanova, Vidin

As I’m starting my third year as a Psychology student in the Plovdiv University, my parents are finishing their secondary education via distant learning. This fact alone stands as testimony for the shift in the attitudes of Roma people in Bulgaria in the last few decades. While during my parents’ childhood school might have not been regarded as an important part of their lifepath, today education is a number one priority for people from our ethnicity.

How a Childhood Dream Becomes Reality My story about the challenges which lead to one’s real vocation Mariela Dimitrova

Some of the kindergartens in Bulgaria are attended by a significant number of children from the Roma community. Nevertheless, the number of Roma educators is extremely low.

A story about strength, inspiration and the support of family on the road to higher education Petya Dimitrova, Bezdenitsa village

When I was a child, my grandma, Petra, would pick me up from kindergarten in our lovely village Vladimirovo in the Montana region and take me to the local patisserie. At that time, my parents worked in Montana and couldn’t look after me during the week which is why we got together only on weekends. It seems that my grandma saw in the small patisserie with all kinds of delicious treats a small substitute for the peaceful and joyful evenings spent together with family.
