I was born in Athens and I have lived in the southern suburbs (Athens Riviera) for more than 40 years. The last five years I have been working to bring more tourists to my neighbourhood. Also, I collaborate with other citizens to make the archeological spots of our municipality known to others. I believe that Athens and the Athens Riviera can attract people with different interests. It is very important to me to show visitors the real (and rich in many ways), Attica and Athens.

Hey there! I consider myself very spontaneous, in a sense that I love to create, reinvent and experiment with new things. I studied and enjoyed engineering and I was one of the three women in Greece in my specialty. But life has a way of changing things so I found my true passion and that is to connect with people. It's amazing how sharing thoughts and ideas, interests or experiences can make such incredible bonds all over the world. I am a collection of the things that have inspired me through my life and those things include my city. Ι believe myself to be a very chilled and open-minded person. I love Athens because it’s the city where I was born and raised and where you can appreciate a contrast of diversity. I like to find the most authentic places of a city. Those places that make you connect with the people and want to come back to them. The Acropolis, temples and museums are impressive, but get to know the way real, everyday Athenians live and hang out.

Having been born and lived in Athens for the majority of my life, I've developed a love for this city. I like walking her streets and exploring her secrets, and then sharing them with travellers from all over the world. I am 24 years old and I currently study Economics. I consider myself a citizen of the world, so I love sharing moments with people from all around the globe.
