DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD GROWING YEARS (8-13 YEARS OLD)
Childhood memories are some of the most precious keepsakes to hold dear to your heart, especially as you grow up. I grew up in Patras, the third biggest city of Greece. My childhood was happy. I have a sister, four years younger than me, for which I am her model. There are so many things that I remember. I was one of those kids who loved to stay in the room playing with barbie dolls and watching my favorite cartoon micky mouse. But not only that. I remember the endless games in my neighborhood with my friends, my favorite pink bike that I never set off. The walks to the sea and the beach with my parents, as my city is near to the sea. My father had a small boat with which I was happy to go rides. As for the summer, we used to travel on the Greek islands and in my village.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
I am really close to my family. We love each other as much as anyone else in the world. When I was a child, we used to do everything together. My parents were the first that inspired my love and respect for nature, the environment, the animals, the forests and of course the sea. The story that I can remember most, is when my family and I took part in a tree planting of a forest which had been burned recently, near my city. Then I was ten years old. We went there to help with the tree planting, in order to re-live the forest. My father helped me plant a pine. I was extremely happy that I could offer my own gift to the nature! I was so proud of myself.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
When I was eighteen years old, my best friend Bill and I, decided to walk to a nearby summer resort, named Labiri, thirty kilometers away from our city. We walked for six hours and more, unceasingly. We passed through a river and at some point, through the sea because there was no way. GPS was not widespread then, so we had studied the map the day before. Despite the hot and the fatigue, it was one of the most beautiful experiences and the landscape was magical. Unfortunately, Bill no longer lives in Greece and none of my friends are willing to do something like this, so I have not done that again.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF THE COUNTRY YOU ARE REPRESENTING?
Greece is the country I was born in. It is a beautiful country, the country where humans and gods coexist. For the ancient Greek, the EARTH was the primordial goddess, the supreme goddess. She gave birth to gods and people. The Greek gods ‘the Olympian gods’, are known throughout the world. Who does not know the god Zeus, the gods’ king, Athena, Aphrodite. The Olympic games started in Greece and then became famous all over the world. Olympic games are interwoven with peace and brotherhood of the countries. In my country democracy was born. Also, the arts and letters, philosophy, poetry and the theater. Everyone knows Homer the ancient Greek poet, Plato, Aristotle, Eschilo. Greece is the country of the sun, the endless summer and the coasts. Greek people are bonded to the nature, they love the forests, the animals and of course the sea. Even the basic principles of ecology have their roots in the thinking and life of the Greeks. For all those reasons and even more, I am proud to be Greek.

WHAT TRIVIA ABOUT YOURSELF WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE?
Bicycling is one of my passions. I prefer taking my bike rather than driving. I try to avoid driving as more as it is possible.
