What does a Humanitarian do?
The personal struggles of finding your path.
The challenges of building a career deeply rooted in your values.

Come and join me for a chat about the NGO sector, the challenges and the adventures that come with international development and humanitarian aid work, solo travelling, volunteering, and finding yourself.
I am excited to share with you a piece of my world and tell you about the exciting projects I’ve been part of, the amazing places, and the people I’ve come to know.

Are you also interested in a career in the humanitarian sector?
Perhaps you are looking for new ways to challenge yourself, or you are simply interested in hear my story. Whatever the answer is, I hope you will bring your curiosity and join me for an inspiring discussion about all things human.

“Embrace the uncertainty. Enjoy the beauty of becoming. When nothing is certain anything is possible”

My name is Maria, and I am an international and community development worker. I left Bulgaria at age 14, and ever since, I have been on a journey of self-discovery, learning, and exploration.

I hope to see you there!
