“Language is such an important part of how we relate to the world. I think it’s important that people have the opportunity to learn languages like Bulgarian that are less commonly taught. I’m happy to be a part of a group like the Bulgarian School of Seattle that works to give people access to these kinds of language-learning resources.”
