Short narrative bio:

I was born in Kumanovo, where I finished primary and secondary education. In 1999 I enrolled in studies at the National Sport Academy in Sofia, R. Bulgaria and there I directed all my sports practical and theoretical training. In 2003, I graduated as a sport dance coach at the Faculty of Coaching, with a professional qualification - sport manager acquired through the additional module Sport Management. I immediately continued my master's studies as a scholarship holder at the Academy due to the highest success of the 2003 generation (first as a foreign student and second on the list of the entire study generation with an average of 9.58). In 2005 I completed a master's degree at the Faculty of Education - "Sports in School and Leisure" program and I earned a Master of Sports title. Since 2007 I have been working at FON University as an assistant at the Faculty of Sports Management and research has directed me to continue to upgrade in the field of sports management and more precisely in the field of sports management in the educational process. In 2010 I enrolled in doctoral studies in the field of sports management again in NSA-Sofia, in 2014 I defended my dissertation and in 2015 I was selected as an assistant professor at FSM at FON University. Apart from being a professor, I am also involved in various additional functions that I fulfill in order to develop the Faculty and the University. I also have a National Judicial Dance License for sports dances, as well as the highest "Master" license for a dance sport coach.
