Emilia Klayn has leveraged her passion for cinema, literature, the arts, culture, and media into a career in voiceover work, acting, interpreting and translating. She voiced the Bulgarian submission for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film this year, “Задачи за деня/Tasks of the Day” which won the IN THE PALACE International Short Film Festival in 2019.

Emilia also works in the communications industry in Bulgaria, in corporate communications, public relations, public affairs, media relations, employer branding, event management, sponsorship and CSR. She is currently working as a Communications and Communities Manager for Tuk-Tam, the biggest community for Bulgarians who have studied and worked abroad. 

What did you study at NYU?

I graduated with an M.A. in French Studies and French from the Department of French Literature, Thought and Culture and the Institute of French Studies at the Graduate School of Art and Sciences, which is the most comprehensive American academic complex devoted to the culture of France. The program takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of modern and contemporary France and francophone countries through the lenses of culture, language, literature, history, art and society.
