The BBC Apprentice series returns to our screens this year, kicking off on March 21th.
Meet Bilyana Apostolova from London, one of this year’s Apprentice candidates who will compete for the £250,000 investment fund from Lord Sugar and to become Lord Sugar’s business partner.
Name: Bilyana Apostolova
Occupation: Risk Analyst
Bulgaria-born Bilyana started off her career aged six, collecting snails from her grandparents’ farm to sell to pharmaceutical companies, and is now training to be a Wealth Manager for British entrepreneurs.
The former head girl, who prefers rollerblading to and from work, feels her biggest achievement is her attitude to life and a dedication to advancing by learning and working hard. She loves dancing, baking and travelling.
She describes herself as positive and adaptable but feels her greatest weakness is dealing with confrontation.
She says: “I got myself from a Communist block of flats in Bulgaria to the top of a skyscraper in the heart of the City of London.”
