About myself: I am a Bulgarian who came to the Netherlands to study electrical engineering and see how life is abroad. I don’t know why but I have been interested in engineering since I was a child and that interest just persisted over the years. When it was time to decided what my further education was going to be, I took a somewhat spontaneous choice to pursuit electrical engineering. I am interested in a lot of things, but engineering seemed like a good choice to make a profession out of.
My hobbies are motorsports with four-wheel vehicles and photography. Unfortunately, motorsports are as easy to participate in compared to the popular ones like tennis or volleyball, so usually watching the cars and taking pictures of them is the way to combine both hobbies.

About PROUD Programme: The first year in Fontys went quite well and I had a lot of free time which I spent gaming. Therefore, it was a good idea to find a job, however I found out about PROUD. Joining PROUD and working in the engineering field was going to be better for my development compared to delivering pizza with my bike in the rain.
Until now I had not worked anything, so I was anxious whether working is going to be unpleasant and stressful. Fortunately, I found a company with pleasant working environment and assignment which I have fun doing.
