Anna's educational journey was a bright one: she began her path in England as an A-level student at a boarding school and continued in Prague with a Bachelor's program in Business Administration and Marketing. During those transformative years, Anna ventured into the exciting realms of communications and marketing. Later she moved to Spain, where she initiated her blog, and dived into the nuances of digital content and social media strategies.

In 2019 Anna met Clever Magazine's Editor-in-Chief, Kristina. Inspired by her passion for education, Anna understood its transformative power. Having experienced the ups and downs of being an international student, she has been inspired to share her insights about education abroad.

Anna's further objective was to align her professional path with L'Oréal, a global beacon in the beauty and cosmetics industry. She relocated to Paris to enrol in a Master’s degree program in Business and Marketing and secured a significant 6-month internship as a Global Social Media Manager Assistant at L'Oréal. She also collaborated with various brands and bloggers worldwide. This tenure provided comprehensive insights into the art and strategy of global brand building on social platforms.

Anna's path eventually converged with Clever Magazine. She profoundly believes in the transformative power of education, and being the Head of Marketing at Clevermagazine, Anna is ready to revolutionise the perception of education and help many people find their unique path.

Kirill believes that education is the key mechanism in making the world spin progressively. It is the path the majority of humans must take that shapes them from confused children to active participants of society. It is also the place where children spend most of their time outside of home.

Although generational burdens of outdated thinking can be passed on to our parents, an innovative educational system is what inevitably breaks these deadlocks or inflicts critical reasoning upon young adults. Consequently, it is the system that raises the thinkers and leaders of tomorrow.

Kirill’s concern is that the educational establishment does this appropriately - inflicting the right morals, manners, skills, and information upon the developing and adaptive mind. According to Singularity University, out of the 200,000 existing universities today, only 300 will remain constructive by the year 2040.

The main challenge for education systems worldwide is the ever-so-quickly developing world, the information, and understanding about which is harder and harder to accumulate into 15 years of class. Kirill’s mission is to build an education system that is adaptive to this rapidly developing world and to start a revolution in the collective perspective of education’s role in society.

Kirill’s motto: the more diverse a community, and the easier the communication between its participants, the faster innovation thrives.

Student of Neuroscience and Psychology at King’s College London, United Kingdom
Kateryna believes that non-academic development is essential for self-development. Growing up, she learned that ambitious goals are achieved through constant and disciplined hard work which shaped Katya’s aspiration and interest in overcoming obstacles.

Katya speaks five languages, graduated from music and dance schools with honours, and won national competitions in couple ice-dancing. This turned out to be a great growing point leading Katya to her studies at the leading university in London.

Katya’s desire to study neuroscience and psychology is driven by the fact that the modern realities of the world made her think about how the world works. Since people are the main component of the management of this system, she delved into what controls people in the first place. Katya created social start-ups for teenagers focusing on self-development, self-understanding, and understanding the world of art.

Katya believes that her aspiration in neuroscience will allow her to build a strong foundation to contribute to innovative start-ups that solve global challenges, such as Clever Magazine.

Anastasija’s life is underpinned by continuous movement, assessment of possibilities, and new horizons for personal growth. Ethnically Russian, born in Kazakhstan, raised in the Czech Republic, and now living in London - she has adopted different cultures and mentalities, the amalgamation of which shape her personality today.

Living in one of the most diverse and inclusive cities, she soon realised that there is no single formula for success, accomplishments, or fulfilment as they’re all underpinned by cultural and/or personal values. What has proven to be true throughout her encounters with people beyond her academic years is that having the right education is one of the most influential factors determining how much you are valued by society.

Her degree has allowed her to be headhunted by an industry-leading software company where she's successfully been promoted twice over 21 months.

Anastasija advocated for leading by example which is why Clever Magazine’s ethos so closely resonates with her and why she’s on the team to drive the project forward, whilst contributing with her thoughts around the importance of education.

Head of Art & Fashion Section at Cleverm Magazine, MA in Humanities, Anglo-American University in Prague, the Czech Republic
Angelina is a fashion editor with extensive experience in art and fashion magazines. She believes that fashion education is undervalued and not properly developed and should be given much more attention.

Since her school years, Angelina has dreamed of becoming a fashion editor. In 2016, she moved to the Czech Republic and entered the Faculty of “Journalism & Communications” at the Anglo-American University in Prague. She completed her Master’s degree in “Humanities” at the same university while also studying art history online. She took the “Fashion Journalism” course and became the editor of Cosmopolitan in Kazakhstan. She is now working as an editor at ELLE Kazakhstan.

“There was no such education as “Fashion Journalism.” I had to look for something related, combining general journalism with art history and humanities. It’s been a long journey,” says Angelina. That's why her goal within Clever Magazine is to make the path easier for those who also want to work in the field of art and fashion, but do not know where to start.
