“If I had two wishes, I know what they would be: I'd wish for Roots to cling to, and Wings to set me free”


Roots and Wings - Initiative by Rodina Sydney, Bulgarian Cultural and Social not-for-profit Association in Sydney, Australia. In this exciting series of live online interviews, you can hear first-hand the stories of inspiring Bulgarians, who share their journey of turning their dreams into reality. These contemporary “greats” and innovative thinkers bring their message to you from Australia, New Zealand and other parts of the world. The interviews are conducted in Bulgarian.

In this interview, we meet with Milena Neyova, the founder of the charity “Hug Me”. The "Hug Me" art studio is located in Sofia, Bulgaria and was founded in 2005. For over 15 years the studio is a place where disadvantaged children can express their artistic nature through painting, reading, and creating beautiful art. Through the creation of art, the kids learn that people are never alone and the good always prevails. More about the charity "Hug me" you can find at www.pregarnime.org
