Raya Encheva

YouTube video blogger who shares travel and lifestyle videos on her channel RayaWasHere. She studied social and cultural studies at Goldsmiths, University of London. After receiving her degree, she moved to New York City. Realizing that she didn't want a normal 9-5 job, she made the decision to spend time working on herself and figure out how she could make a positive difference in the world. Born in Ruse, Bulgaria, she has moved at least 15 times and didn't speak English until she was 10. Her family moved to the US in 2002. In January of 2016 she posted a video entitled "2015 Favorites w/ My Boyfriend!" featuring her boyfriend Louis. She is good friends with fellow travel vlogger Louis Cole. [+]
