Message from MCP Dear applicant, Congratulations! You have taken your first brave step into an unknown world! I remember being in your position last year, unsure of what I want to do in my life and scared to take that leap in the dark! I took a change and jumped, and since then I have not looked back. Despite its challenges, the entity is filled with experiences which challenge you every day and push you to continuously be the best version of yourself. The people are kind, friendly and welcoming to everyone. I will not lie, it is not all a simple journey, but I promise you it is one worth taking. I ask you to trust yourself, trust the entity and take the blind step forward into the unknown and roar with the Lions! Regards, Michi MCP AIESEC in Bulgaria 18/19

About Bulgaria Located in the Southeast of Europe, Bulgaria lies at the crossroads between Europe, Africa and Asia. It is bordered by Romania to the North, Serbia and Macedonia to the West, the Black Sea to the East and Greece and Turkey to the South. Known as one of the few exotic places in Europe, Bulgaria boasts a mix of history, culture, winter sports, lovely churches which dot the island and great hikes through its mountains and valleys. Through the centuries, the Bulgarian culture has seen many influences, ranging from the Thracians, Greeks, Ottomans, Slavs and Russians. Nevertheless, the Bulgarian identity has remained strong, evidence of which can be seen throughout the country.
