Anastasia K. Stoyanova (or simply, Sia) is a poet, dancer and applied philosopher. A trained economist and self-professed artist, her work is concerned with politics, migration and human emotion. Much of this contemplative focus springs from considerations encountered on a steady life journey through Europe – born in Bulgaria, raised in Greece and educated in Scotland and Germany, she adopts the Balkan and European macro-identities in a nod to her commitment to unity. 

An existentialist at heart, she is currently investigating topics of self-reflection and the resolution of rampant individualism in the context of tech-capitalism. Her thesis of prevailing superficiality in human relations mirrors her deeply rooted sentimentalism, as well as her concern for the detrimental effect of online communication on communion.
