Bistra Hristova

in Asheville United States

Bistra Hristova is a first generation Bulgarian American and has lived in the States for almost 20 years. She is fully immersed in American life and society as an interior designer, photographer and traveler, but her identity as a person is still deeply rooted in her Bulgarian heritage. Even stronger than her ethnic and geographic sense of belonging is her connection with nature. Her interest in traveling is fueled by a burning desire to conquer new personal frontiers, to explore simpler ways of life and to immerse in other cultures.
