High School Diploma

Sofia High School of Mathematics

I have graduated from Sofia High School of Mathematics (one of the best schools in Bulgaria) among the top 5% of my class, which helped me develop my analytical skills and logical thinking. This is further substantiated by the fact that I am the only person who has qualified and participated in four International Olympiads in Mathematical, Theoretical and Applied Linguistics, for which the above mentioned competencies were crucial. The knowledge I have acquired in the fields of Mathematics and Linguistics turned out to be extremely beneficial for my current studies as well, especially when it comes to finance-related disciplines.

Being assigned to the management consulting division, I had the opportunity to collaborate intensively with a global team of principal business consultants.
