The interview with Vania Angelova is devoted to the topic of multipotentials – versatile gifted people. By her own example, the Bulgarian researcher tells how she took part in the different projects as a writer, philologist, poetess, journalist and in many other guises. At the same time, such versatility is not a burden for her – on the contrary, the participation in different projects and the performance of various social roles allow her to reveal more deeply and fully each of them, stimulates new creative searches. What for the older generations was the result of overwhelming or unique personality is increasingly becoming a widespread norm, a way of life for the younger generation. This allows us to speak now of the new generation as a generation of multipotentials, whereas earlier it was possible to observe only extremely rare phenomena of multipotentials on the example of individuals. Vania Angelova believes that the formation of a person as a multipotential begins in early childhood, therefore it is extremely important to educate children that will enable them to develop as multipotentials. Vania Angelova critically assesses the onset of modern digital culture, its dominance, and encourages young people to turn to books and not limit their world to digital technologies. At the same time, the Internet, social networks, online classes can partially compensate for the lack of communication in emergency situations, such as a pandemic and the accompanying lockdowns. Also, digital communications contribute to the establishment of international contacts – the implementation of both scientific and other creative projects. However, any successful projects are based on live human communication – it is this that reveals the personality as a multipotential. Therefore, personal communication is especially important in the field of education.
