I am Yana from Bulgaria and proud to be deaf, mutli-cultural woman living and advocating for the cause of equality. I believe that advocacy can change “what is” into “what should be”.

In addition to my personal investment, I am building an academic and professional career in advocacy work. After witnessing with anguish the lives of young people scared from injustice, human rights violations and the traps of pervasive poverty, I am devoting my heart and hands to promoting justice and supporting equality.

I hope that you, the readers, will join me in my activist journey to build insight and understanding and to challenge all to accomplish human rights goals through the tool of social media. A famous quotation once said, “If we don’t try, we don’t do, and, if we don’t do, why are we here on this Earth?”  cropped-map.jpg
