Greetings, friends! My name is Kristiyan Kyulyunkov, and I am part of the incredible team behind Betenemy. It is my job to use my skills and knowledge in the field of the bookmaking industry and sports to write reviews and articles for our site, but now it is my turn to share personal information about me. You will learn more about my professional background and the reasons why I joined Betenemy’s team.
My Early Years
I was born in 1993. As a child, I grew up to love sports, and this passion has stuck with me since then. I remember watching Formula 1 when little and being over the moon when Michael Schumacher won a race. Although I enjoyed watching a variety of sports that were broadcast on TV at the time, my real passion was football. Being a typical young boy, I used to wear T-shirts with different teams’ logos and enjoyed the game. It was not until some time later that I found my favorite teams and learned what it meant to be a loyal fan. My great love of football kindled my interest in sports as a whole making this a hobby which I later turned into a career.
At school, I had straight A’s, although it didn’t take me long to realize that grades were not as important as gaining skills and staying motivated to learn and excel in your knowledge. Still, I believe that being a diligent student has helped me, in one way or another, be where I am now. Thus, I grew up spending half my day with my nose stuck in textbooks and the other half practicing football in my spare time. Inevitably, I had to grow up and face life’s challenges.
Education and Training
I finished high school in the city of Plovdiv where I spent five wonderful years at the Vocational School of Electrical Engineering and Electronics. It was there and then that I really underwent a process of self-discovery turning me into the man I am today. I received a diploma in Computer Science and Technology, but I did not see a point in pursuing professional realization in this field. Therefore, I continued my higher education by taking a slightly different direction.
Consequently, I graduated from Plovdiv University “Paisii Hilendarski” with a Bachelor’s degree in Business IT. During my studies there, I learned a lot of things that I can put into practice when working for Betenemy today. Although I graduated in the IT sphere, my real passion is and has always been writing.
Creating original texts and analyzing specific problems, especially if they are related to sports, is what I do best and which gives me the most pleasure.
My desire to develop in the sports’ field paved my professional career path. Hence, my first real job after graduating was at a sports site where I had to track scores in real time. We were in charge of the live scores of a few sports, including my favorite, football. This position of mine further enriched my knowledge of the sports world and allowed me to get acquainted with a variety of sources, including bookmaking websites. The period of three years I spent at the sports site meant the knowledge I started to gain in this sphere increased at a rapid pace giving me a solid foundation for development. I knew it was time to move on in order to combine my knowledge of the world of sports with my lifelong passion for writing. Then, the opportunity to work for Betenemy appeared, and I didn’t hesitate to take it.
My Role in Betenemy
While I was keeping track of live scores at my previous job I had the good fortune to get in contact with the main person behind Betenemy. He was the one to trust me enough to give me my first assignment for the site, for which I will always be grateful. At that time I had yet to write professionally. However, my writing style was pretty good. Couple that with my expertise concerning all things sports and soon I continued to take on more tasks for the site. Things changed in 2017 when I was offered a permanent position at Betenemy. Of course, I could not turn down such an offer since it allowed me to manifest myself in the writing realm in which I wanted to develop further.
My main tasks for the site include writing content and reviews in Bulgarian. This content is quite varied, as I have to write a lot of analyses, guides, betting strategies, etc. Eventually, I began to be in charge of the quality of the English content on the site which I check and upload to our pages. I find great pleasure in receiving assignments, that I prioritize before starting to work on them. I believe that the only way to do something the right way is to do it with zeal and desire.
It is hardly surprising that I love watching soccer matches, supporting my favorite teams, and also playing football myself. In addition to jogging, I often go to the gym to keep fit and unwind after a busy day at work. I’m also quite fond of traveling and exploring new places. As cultivation of your mind is a constant process, it is often the case that I spend my spare time reading books. I am more than convinced that success can be achieved by anyone who dreams big and doesn’t wait around for opportunities to find them but does something to bring about a change in their fortune.
I want to finish on an encouraging note with a quote by William Arthur Ward, whose words are 100% true in my opinion:
“The recipe for success is: Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.”
