Growing up, I had always thought that life, as if by magic, always puts us on the right path. As I got older, however, I discovered that sometimes you have to grab the steering wheel yourself, and turn your life in the right direction.

For me, perhaps the greatest change I've had to make has been in my choice of careers. I'd studied in one field and completed my undergraduate degree, but I couldn't seem to find exactly where to go from there. Nothing felt right, so I took a long look at what I really wanted to do in life, and I decided that I wanted to work in the Mental Health field.

Unfortunately, the degree I had completed had nothing to do with this at all, and it was tough work getting a foot in the door. However, I was amazed when I finally got accepted to the Master of Counseling Psychology program. And although I was in the midst of excitement I thought: "Hey, look, life does take you where you want to go." But then I looked back on the work that I'd done to make this happen, and I realized that it was my persistence and effort that got me to this point.

It's true that life will take you to wonderful places, but if you want to get the most out of the ride, you can't just be a passenger. You've got to choose the destination yourself, buckle up and drive hard.

In 2010, the Greek crisis hit and the country went into freefall. I was left without a job, a car or even medical insurance, and there was little perspective of finding a new job any time soon.

It must have been at the end of middle school when I discovered graffiti. My new hobby began stealing ‘precious’ time I could have used for studying for school. I realised that action had to be taken...

The French poet Arthur Rimbaud once wrote that "Eternity is the sea mingled with the sun " and I guess there' s a little bit of truth of that in me.

I am a fan of poetry. Poems have the ability to paint a picture in just a few words… especially while traveling.

There is a theory that claims that your name determines who you are. Antigone, the famous heroine of a Greek tragedy, defied the rules and for that she faced death.

I was about five, and I was taking part in a school celebration. When I stood behind the microphone, my mind went blank and my mouth went dry. Tears welled up in my eyes.

As Euclid said, the laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God. So, maybe the reason I developed an inclination to mathematics is because I was so connected to the earth since my childhood.

Camus once mentioned that a single truth, if it is obvious, is enough to guide an existence. Although it may sound unreasonable or perhaps simplistic at first glance, for me it proved to be right.

Testimonials

"I went with my husband and we had the best time! Our tour guide was amazing. The food delicious and we learned a lot about the culture and the city. I really recommend it!"

dRiverina

"This was the most enjoyable tour we did in Athens and this was all down to our guide. She was so friendly and gave information not only about the food but also the history of Athens. The food we sampled was delicious. There was so much food that we had a doggie bag that we filled as we went around."

Princess001

"A very rewarding evening. Our very friendly and informative guide took us to a modern wine bar, where the staff were efficient and the owner extremely knowledgeable about Greek wine. The evening was thoroughly enjoyable as well as being instructive (and most welcome to be outside the normal tourist destinations)."
