Here is more information about the award:

«Human of the Year» is an annual award recognizing contribution to human rights in Bulgaria. The award was initiated by the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee. This is its second year.

We are looking for the bold, the tenacious, those with civil courage – in order to honour and encourage them.

We are looking for the acts that are a precedent in the sphere of human rights, that have significant potential for stimulating societal development, or are simply innovative and creative.

We are looking for them because we know that they frequently remain unheard or undervalued.

We are looking for them because we want to catalyse the processes of thinking, talking and fighting for human rights in Bulgaria.

I care about privacy, ethical design, and freedom in many aspects. I spend 20+ years working as a web developer and architect, analyst, manager, and product owner/manager in different environments, several countries, and multiple software industries like Healthcare and Hospitality. I wore many hats, and I use the knowledge gathered to optimize the flow of value across complex systems.
