The Apprentice 2012: Bilyana Apostolova Candidate Profile

Bilyana Apostolova, 25, is a risk analyst who lives in London. Why should she be Lord Sugar's next Apprentice?

Well, 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.”

Her Apprentice candidate profile reads:

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.
