Photo exhibition “American horses- the ones that carry lasting values”
DIGIT Festival 2020
The project is the cross point between the art of photography and values young people try to live by. Through it the US Ambassador’s Youth Council representing the youth community conveys a message – modern societies from the USA to Bulgaria have common values and the youth stands by them. Each photograph bears a message that delivers an eternal value. The messengers are free living American horses. The horses in the photographs, all of the breeds Paint and Quarter Horse, are descendants of the American mustang. They are raised in Bulgaria as close to their natural environment as possible and trained in liberty at 4OUR RANCH. In partnership with Paint and Quarter Horse Foundation Bulgaria and 4OUR RANCH many of them contribute to our society by being therapeutic horses for children and young people with disabilities.
The festival was realized in Bansko, Bulgaria in October 2020. It enabled young entrepreneurs between the ages of 14 and 24 to face the challenge of creating a conceptual business project within 48 hours and to defend it before a jury of internationally recognized entrepreneurs. The prizes included vouchers, medals, and many other additional gifts.

Podcast "Road to Success"
How do people succeed in Bulgaria? What does their success depend on?
What motivates them and what makes them successful? What is success at all?
We live in an information era and it is very easy to just play a YouTube video and check how people who are outside of our country succeed.
However, the context is important! What our members from the US Ambassador’s Youth Council look for in the podcast “Road to Success” (@roadtosuccessbg) are the rules that are the basis of the success in Bulgaria.
In this podcast you will hear the motivational stories of people who are on different levels of success and who are showing how many are the opportunities in Bulgaria for personal and career development; most importantly, what mindset is needed for their achievements.
