While earning a Cultural Studies degree at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski," Irina Asiova simultaneously learned how to thrive in the journalism world as a trainee in the Duma newspaper (which was at that time under the rule of the legendary Stefan Prodev). Shortly thereafter, she had the good fortune of sharpening her journalistic sword amid the 24 hour newspaper cycle, a learning experience few of today's aspiring journalists are still able to achieve. In 12 years as a reporter and senior editor in the entertainment section of one of Bulgaria's most influential daily newspapers, Asiova interviewed almost every Hollywood star to land on Bulgarian soil, as well as a multitude of local celebrities. Her most recent artistic endeavors include her work for the hot monthly magazine BIOGRAPH, for which Irina tells her stories of cavorting with the rich and famous and her further adventures around the Globe.
