By Zhenya Marcheva, YES Bulgaria ’19
The biggest advantage of the YES program is that it enables you to use YOUR best tools in cooperating with other people. You don’t have to speak perfect English or be athletic. The traits you need to have for the program are ones every single person can develop and use in their everyday life, which makes selection fair and accessible to all.
The most challenging part of the competition is all the documentation you have to prepare. There’s a constant worry you won’t get something right, and you will fail with filling out your application or mess something important up. The good news is no mistake is big enough to not be fixed, especially with all the contact information and support you are presented with. There are people who help and navigate you at all times throughout the experience so there isn’t much room left for worry.
