Radostina (Radost) Chaprazova receives her BA degree in Political science and mass communications at the American University in Bulgaria in 2003. She is currently pursuing an MA in Public management and policies at the Faculty of philosophy of the Sofia university St. Kliment Ohridski.
In 2005 Radost is an intern at the European Commission, DG Employment and social affairs. By 2010 works as an expert at the European Funds for Competitiveness Directorate at the Ministry of Economy, Energy and Tourism and then returns to the NGO sector as part of the Roma Program of the Open Society Institute - Sofia.
More than 15 years Radost is an informal leader in her community and holds various positions in the civil sector as the focus of her work is to mobilize resources and facilitate capacity building among Roma youth, support policy and advocacy initiatives that promote integration and equal opportunities of the Roma.
Radost shares the mission and message of Arete to be the best you can be; reaching your highest human potential. She believes that everyone has their own unique potential, but not everyone gets the chance to develop it, being deprived of support and right direction.
Together with socially responsible partners from the business, educational institutions, NGOs and volunteers of Arete, Radost will commit her work on establishing and sustaining a network of knowledgeable, confident, young leaders and competitive, result-oriented professionals to serve as role models for their Roma community.
