The 19-year student, Bulgarian Philology, Sofia University, has been writing for 4 years only.
The young winner shared that she even didn't know this was poetry at the beginning, she would just woke up during the night and put down her thoughts. The award was given by Yordanka Ananieva, Deputy Mayor in Culture. A nice surprise was the offer to have her poems published, supported by the owner of publishing house "Signs" ("Znatzi"), Roumiana Emanuilidou.
The competition was organized for the fourth year in a row by Reading House "Sts Cyril and Methodius 1985" and was supported by Municipality of Bourgas, publishing house "Signs", association "Bulgarian Writer"- Bourgas, Youth Cultural Centre and magazine "The Sea".
