What is your HE-Artist talent or skill? Please describe.
I’ve learned and I can design professionally various clothes for women and children. Depending on customer specifications and requirements I can offer a full-specialized service involving client consultation, full design and fabrication of any type of clothing. The customized clothing items are cut, executed and finalized into the finished product in record time.
How long have you been doing this?
I have this passion for clothing from childhood, when I remember designing doll clothes from scrap textiles. Later, in parallel with my high school studies, I began to self study various specialized books about art of clothing and tailoring for women and children. My father, impressed by my interest in this field, purchased my first sewing machine and he paid a maintenance and usage training course for me. Today I continue to improve my knowledge in this area and I managed to establish a group of loyal clientele.
Why did you start doing this?
Initially this was a hobby, but soon it became an additional source of income.
What makes you love doing this?
I get great pleasure from designing new clothes and especially when I manage to get my customers very satisfied and happy with my service.
What is your current job?
I have a degree from Faculty of Management and Administrative Sciences followed by a master’s degree in the same field. I have professional experience in healthcare, especially in medical statistics. I followed training courses and specialized in health economics and approximately 10 months ago I started a comprehensive program of personal development, for a career change. Currently I am self-employed.
How long have you been working in the field of health economics and outcomes research?
I worked about 18 years as a medical statistician in the health system, including: collecting and processing, compilation and synthesis reports for the health system management, locally and nationally. I have experience in coding diagnoses of disease, calculating demographic indicators, calculating various performance indicators, and evaluation of medical units. I was a member of working groups involved in the assessment of costs and optimization of health services at the county level.
