SoMe & Blog Coordinator


I was born and raised in Patras. From an early age, I loved literature, the rich, full of twists and turbulent Greek history and ancient mythology so in 2011, I’ve decided to combine my two loves and during the endless classes in the Department of Philology of the University of Patras I found my passion, the study of ancient Greek and Latin literature and Anthropology. In 2016, I’ve graduated with distinction and I’ve immediately enrolled with honorary scholarship in the department’s master program. Since then, I’ve made much research and some publications on the religion and anthropology of the ancient world. Currently, I am focusing on the philosophical aspect of the erotic literature during the Second Sophistic movement which is going to be the field of my future PhD. In 2015, I had the privilege to be an intern in the National Hellenic Research Foundation, to be also an alumna of the Center for Hellenic Studies of Harvard University and to participate in many of its activities. I have work experience on lexicography, blog and magazine editing, secretary assistance, coordination of conferences and summer schools. In 2017 teaching came as a surprise and since then, being a tutor and associating with kids and young students became a blessing and a fascinating adventure in my life! My greatest dreams are to have the perfect soundtrack in every moment of my life, to travel and taste the world while capturing it with my camera.
