Bulgaria’s Eurovision 2020 and 2021 representative, Victoria, has been nominated for Forbes Bulgaria’s “30 Under 30”. This is an annual list, which includes leaders who are under 30.
The 30 leaders are divided into five categories. Victoria was nominated in the Culture, Art and Media category. But she wasn’t the only Bulgarian to be nominated; Bulgarian Hollywood actress Maria Bakalova, was nominated in the same category for her role as Borat’s daughter in the Amazon movie “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm”.
