When you want to surround yourself with people who are not scared to dream, go out there and create their own happiness, you have to learn to let go and simply trust that human connection transcends over words, time or geography. And yes, it does.
“Inspire Bulgaria” aims to provide Bulgarian High School students with micro-funds, mentorship and leadership training to help them implement low-cost social engagement projects in their respective communities. Participation in the program will empower young people to effectively plan and implement their ideas using different leadership and project management approaches. Participation in all phases of the program (mentorship, training and project implementation) will help young people acquire leadership skills and confidence in their ability to contribute and influence positive change, in addition to motivating them to contribute to the society and involve and inspire their peers to be active citizens themselves, too.

“I’m never gonna wait that extra twenty minutes to text you back, and I’m never gonna play hard to get when I know your life has been hard enough already. When we all know everyone’s life has been hard enough already. It’s hard to watch the game we make of love, like everyone’s playing checkers with their scars, saying checkmate whenever they get out without a broken heart. Just to be clear, I don’t want to get out without a broken heart. I intend to leave this life so shattered there better be a thousand separate heavens for all of my separate parts.” – Andrea Gibson
Dear Maggie Nazer,
We are pleased to inform you that you have been selected to attend CGI U 2014, taking place March 21-23, 2014 at Arizona State University.
I just discovered that I have been admitted to participate in the GES this Spring:
Congratulations! We are pleased to invite you to attend the Global Engagement Summit in Evanston, IL from April 16-20, 2014. Considering the impressive quality of the applications received, the selections were difficult. Your application stood out among those submitted from across the U.S. and the globe. It is for this very reason that we have chosen to invite you to share your thoughts and experiences with other motivated students from around the world at this year’s Global Engagement Summit.”
The project I applied with is called Inspire Bulgaria: http://vduhnovi.com/english/
