Nina Bankova, a resident of Maryland for 15 years, started her education at the American University in Bulgaria, consequently obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Towson University, a Masters in Applied Economics from Johns Hopkins University, and a Project Management Professional Certification through the Project Management Institute. She leads professional and educational exchange initiatives and foreign policy programs for a non profit organization in Washington, DC.

On volunteering at BCCB, Nina shares: “I was deeply inspired by the selfless commitment of the initiators of the Bulgarian Cultural Center of Baltimore who persevered against all odds to make a difference in our collective consciousness of Bulgarians abroad. I am proud of our accomplishments as a community and would like to keep my family as close to our roots as possible while helping others do the same.”
