My name is Micha, and I currently live and work in London. I was born in Bulgaria where I spent most of my formative years. I consider myself to be very curious, which can me a bit annoying. I love learning new facts and solving problems using seemingly unrelated ideas. Languages are my passion, I speak a fair few and I am always trying to add to the list. I'm trying to tackle Japnese and the moment and would love to find someone willing to teach me.

At the moment poor families and forced to abandon their children in institutions that haven't got the resources to provide them with real care. Lumos is trying to close down such institutions and use the funding to help the parents look after their children instead. By providing them with financial support and counselling.
