Every weekday evening, the show "Unforgettable 20" with Ina offers a unique selection of the best music from the 80s and 90s of the last century. The elegant and extremely pleasant journey into the past starts at 6 p.m. and lasts until 10 p.m. At exactly 8 p.m., the airwaves give way to favorite Bulgarian hits. Both music lovers and patriots will see for themselves how much eternal songs that sound on the frequencies of "Atlantic".
What profession did you dream of as a child?
Children dream of being astronauts, teachers, doctors, there are even those who dream of professions such as a conductor. I have never dreamed of a specific profession. I wanted to become a princess or, in the last resort, to be the spring - in the kindergarten they organized celebrations to welcome the First Spring. The poop that played the role of Spring was so beautiful that I promised myself that if I didn't become a princess, I would be Spring. Well, I didn't get up, but I've been a radio host for 11 years now. And after 11 years, I'm excited and worried, as if it's my first time on the air.
What are your career ambitions?
I want The Unforgettable 20 to establish itself as the ultimate 80s and 90s music show. I want people to perceive it as their personal oasis, as a lifeboat in the sea of everyday life and to be with me every night on the waves of radio "Atlantic".
Are there times in your work when you find it difficult as a woman? Or do you feel facilitated by your gender?
Thank god no, although male voices in radio stations have always been in short supply and if it comes down to me and Him in a casting call, He wins most of the time. But I haven't had any problems of that nature.
I admit, there were many moments when I wanted to resolve a superficial dispute or scandal the manly way. Sometimes female diplomacy isn't quite enough for me, simply because there are things that can't be defeated with a calm attitude.
Is it fun to play Cupid every day?
I haven't had the opportunity to step into this role, but if I ever do, I'm sure it will be very nice. To ignite love and connect two people with it is a fairy tale. Who doesn't love fairy tales !
Share your experience and your best professional achievements
What I am doing now, I consider my dream come true. I do a show about music and memories from the 80s and 90s on Atlantic radio. I like the music I play, I am happy to prepare the materials for the show, because they are all about my topics - music, cinema, literature. God give everyone such luck. I don't work, I have fun. I've had moments when I go into a show crying, sad, and after 20 minutes of work my mood is back to 6.
Of course, I had to work hard to get here. I have worked in radio stations with different types of sound and different requirements for my team. I started as a girl for everything, then I was a trainee reporter, then a reporter, I also did a teen show for a few months. It was a long road to the proudly sounding host program. I have even done political shows, I was 18, I didn't understand anything about politics, but I had no choice, I prepared for days for the topic and I did it. At radio "Atlantic" I finally felt in my place.
If you take stock of your journey, what would you point to as your greatest success ever?
The biggest success, the biggest treasure and everything is my daughter, of course. Whatever happened to me, her “MOM” puts everything in its place.
What do you spend more time on - your family or your profession?
I give a lot to my family, I try to be with my daughter as much as possible and at the same time not make my loved one feel neglected. I think I have achieved a good balance between work and family.
Your message to the modern Bulgarian woman?
There are no such women as Bulgarian women - we are working mothers, wives, we want to be perfect in what we do so much that we forget about ourselves. And it shouldn't, we should make our lives beautiful - to love each other, to pamper each other..
What do you want to teach your children?
To be a good and responsible person, to believe in your dreams, because, fact - they do come true. I want to teach her to keep her word, to her principles, to be true to herself. Sometimes, when I think about how responsible a task I have in front of me - to give my child a faithful upbringing, I get scared. But I think I'll be fine.
Favorite color? A song? Taste? Place?
Almost all the songs that my radio station, "Atlantic" plays, are my favorites. We play the best of the 80s, 90s and today. it's the music that fuels me. Recently, the Unforgettable 20 also makes a special gift for music lovers-patriots - the best Bulgarian songs from the 80s and 90s. I love them all, but my favorite ones are "Since you" by Stoyan and Viktor, "Monologue" by "Ahat", "Sineva" by Georgi Hristov.
I don't have a favorite color, but I do have a favorite place - Rupite. The most magical place I've ever been to - there, the air and the earth, and I'm different.
Favorite recipe? Something you enjoy cooking for your family and friends?
I make moussaka the best - it's everyone's favorite at home and I'm already an expert. Sometimes it happened that I prepared exactly that three evenings in a row - moussaka. But I also know something else, whatever I put on the table, as long as I am smiling and serve it with love, happiness is complete.
