Personal Profile

My name is Valentin Tassev. I am twenty-five years old and currently I live and study in Johannesburg, South Africa. I have obtained a BA degree majoring in International Relations and Media Studies, a BA (Honours) degree in International Relations and I have almost completed my MA degree in International Relations.
I am fluent in Bulgarian, English, Russian and Italian. I have also done Latin, ancient Greek, ancient Bulgarian, modern Greek and French. My passion is indeed studying foreign languages and cultures. In particular, i am interested in a career in diplomacy and international relations or any journalism (or publishing)-related field.
I enjoy writing, watching movies and playing soccer in my free time. I hope that the current work-training programme will teach me a lot about the world of work and it will help me to implement myself succesfully into the workplace. Thus, I will try my best to make use of it! So far, it has been really an amazing exoerience for me.

Why Blogging?

My first day at the work training programme has been really an amazing experience. In fact, the idea of blogging seems appealing to me and I find it really an interesting forum for the exchange of information and ideas.
In particular, I believe that blogging helps you establish solid contacts with other people and it is also an extremely efficient tool for finding possible employers. On the other hand, blogging helps you learn from your mistakes through the recommendation of others who had read your comments and ideas and who could express their views on these matters.
Personally, I believe that blogging will help me establish contacts with the other participants in the training programme and exchange infromation on various issues. Yet, i think that the guest-speakers and hopefully some possible employers could learn a little bit more about me through the comments that i make throughout my blogs.
For that reason, i am looking forward to it!
