WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY?
I am proud of my country because the ancient Greeks pioneered in many fields based on systematic thought, such as biology, geometry, history, philosophy and physics. They introduced such important literary forms as epic and lyric poetry, history, tragedy and comedy. In the pursuit of order and proportion, the Greeks created an ideal of beauty that strongly influenced Western art.

WHAT CAN YOU PROMOTE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY?
Olive oil because it is against cancer and is the highest quality and purest product used for our famous Greek salads and traditional foods. However, olive oil is also used in cosmetics and beauty masks!

I am social and I believe that kindness and cultivation are invaluable to a person. I am also a fair person and I have self-knowledge in my life, I have a strong character while I am very spontaneous.
