Daniela Shumway, is the one of the youngest, most beautiful and intelligent goths in Bulgarian Gothic society. The second two qualities had proven to us at The Other Side and now in Forlorn.
Although she is only 22 years old, Daniela has a wide range of Gothic photos, organizations and initiatives that make her a very attractive personality for Bulgarian Gothic and Metal culture. The words “Gothic and Metal” are predestined for her life.
Hello, Daniela. We can not ask you: After such a long absence from you, you decided to continue to work with charities and self-initiatives. What happened to you?
First of all, I want to thank you very much for inviting me to participate again in your interview.
I like you very much. During this long year, I have not stopped checking your metal web and I am admired. I like your work very much and I wish you continue posting interviews, articles, news, and etc.
Thank you very much for the good words. Unfortunately, it’s a bit difficult to combine work and hobbies.
Do you manage to strike a balance between work and private life, and is it sometimes that one overcomes the other?
Yes.It happens because of my complicated sleep regime and my unusual working hours. But what I am trying to do everything possible to achieve a balance between the both.
Do you have free time that’s it personal to you and how do you spend it?
No. I invest everything in organizations, photos and development of Gothic culture in Bulgaria. This is my free time. I feel internally satisfied.
Do you want to have more time?
Yes. I want to have more free time to relax and travel abroad.
Is there a recipe for how a woman’s time is enough for everything?
Yes of course. It all depends on the priorities. Mine its photos and organizations.
What do you working?
Generally. I work in the banking sphere.
Are you looking for another development, i mean yours personally?
I constantly seek personal development. I plan a lot of projects in 2019. I intend to continue writing about the abandoned places in Bulgaria and taking initiatives.
What inspired you to make this photo shoot?
The time is a winter Story. I do not like winter because of other factors but the landscape is wonderful.
Daniela, from where do you come this self-initiative to do so much things?
There are so many abandoned places in Bulgaria, forsaken and neglected, and no one can take care of. A typical example “The Strawberry House”
The country took note of the public interest and issued a formal opinion on the subject. For which I thank the Ministry of Culture and everyone who has signed the petition.
I want to thank you about your wonderful arcticle “Keep the Strawberry House” which you published in The Other Side in May 2017
Some time ago, we asked you, what happens if you fail the project “Keep the Strawberry House”? We now want to thank you and the people behind you and congratulate you on your success.
Thank you, The Other Side. Success is not just mine, it’s all the wonderful people and organizations that have struggled with us to protect this beautiful building from demolition.
What can we expect from you as projects in the near future?
Well, I’m just thinking about making a trip to the countryside and showing some landmarks that crash. Abandoned places and write about them. I’m preparing a big project for the airports in Bulgaria, the “Bath in Ovcha Kupel” and many others.
