Unveiling Passion and Precision: A Candid Chat with Junior Associate, Yordanka Marcheva

Can you share a personal mantra or philosophy that guides your approach to work?

My personal mantra is “dream, believe, do it”, but necessarily in that sequence. It’s important to dream, but I’m sure it takes faith and hard work to make a dream come true. Dream boldly, believe unapologetically, and do it with relentless determination. I often remind myself that  time is the most precious resource we have. Each passing moment is an opportunity to build and develop, to inch closer to your aspirations, both in your professional and personal life. So, in summary, my mantra is a reminder that life is a dynamic journey where dreaming, believing, and doing are all intertwined. This is motivating me to make the most of my time and continually strive for growth.

Outside of the office, what are your passions or hobbies, and how do you think they compliment your work?

I’m a big fan of taking long walks and hiking in nature. There’s something incredibly uplifting about being in nature, and it keeps me feeling positive. Another passion of mine is reading, and I’m particularly drawn to science and fantasy books, where imagination knows no bounds. Beyond these interests, I have a commitment to environmental preservation. I actively participate in various initiatives dedicated to safeguarding and nurturing our natural world. This dedication stems from my desire to extend empathy and support others, ultimately contributing to our overall well-being. I believe that by safeguarding and aiding nature, an individual not only helps themselves but also enhances their own living conditions.

Can you share a personal achievement that you’re particularly proud of?

In reflecting upon my professional career trajectory, I am truly elated to have successfully completed my academic studies with distinction, being among the top three individuals with the best academic achievements in my class. Currently, I am employed in a position that provides me with immense satisfaction and also affords continuous opportunities for growth and development.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to your younger self?

If I could offer advice to my younger self, it would be this: ,,Embrace the challenging moments, especially those beyond your control, without succumbing to guilt, anxiety, or unnecessary worry. Channel your energy into positive actions and thoughts aimed at conquering these challenges. Remind yourself that in the grand scheme of things, what may seem significant today may no longer matter in three months, six months, or a year, for example. Focus on your growth and resilience.” Instead of succumbing to blame, anxiety, or any other negative emotions, understand that these feelings do nothing to enhance your circumstances. They only serve to hinder your peace of mind and personal progress.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role in the law firm and why?

Each workday presents me with diverse and challenging cases, demanding not only knowledge and skills but also a touch of creativity to resolve. These challenges offer a gateway to continuous learning and skill acquisition. What truly makes this experience satisfying is the presence of a vibrant, enjoyable, and supportive work environment that encourages my progress and self-expression.
