Passion, inspiration and greatness is what keeps Aleks going. Get to know the Bulgarian teacher in our Q&A.
What is most important to you in your life?
The most important thing for me is to follow my passion. I love to inspire children and to show them that they can achieve greatness and it's all about them.
Realistically, what do you expect from your future?
I want to make a change in my country. Therefore I will give the best I can to motivate the next generation as being their teacher.
How do you spend your free time?
I love to do sports and I also love reading. My favorite book is the biography of Steve Jobs. Another book that really inspires me is "100 great speeches that changed the world!". I also enjoy meeting new people, but if I need time for myself I go to the mountainside to hike and think about my life. Something I'm really looking forward to is a trip to Greece in April I got through a scholarship.
If you want to reward yourself by doing something special, what do you do?
If I really want to reward myself I go and take a walk in the beautiful nature, for example in the mountains which are close to my house. There I can think about my new life as a teacher.
Your country is said to be pessimistic - what do you think about that? How does that affect your life?
I think the youth can change that stereotype and I'm there to teach them to do so.
