“Certificate in recognition of the devotion to the task of building the European Union
during the Euroscola programme in the European Parliament”
After an essay competition I was amongst 30 students selected to represent Greece in the euroscola programme in the EU

establishment of Europe in the world”.I later took part in the plenary session of the parliament, where I discussed and voted on the
proposals of the different committees. This experience enabled me to gain confidence in addressing large audiences, strengthened my
understanding of the way in which European institutions work, and helped me to develop indispensable debating and presentation
skills.

This job entailed working with the company's ERP database system, printing the invoices for all the orders and ensuring
that they were attached to the correct order. I was also filing receipts and invoices appropriately according to tax
legislation. This job enabled me to broaden my understanding of the way a small company works, and offered me an
introduction to microeconomics, as well as the use of databases.
 Assistant to the logistics manager 2005,2006
My responsibilities included receiving the orders sent to the warehouse by the sales department and organizing them,
preparing the required paperwork for all the individual packages to be shipped , and ensuring that all items were
shipped to the right recipient. This job required great responsibility on my part and offered me a first view to the way
companies work.

 Editor in Chief 2008-2009
As head of the editorial team, I coordinated with the other members of the team to organize the paper's articles, I set
deadlines, and I worked with the graphic designer on the layout and the presentation of the newspaper. Having to
coordinate a group of people under pressing deadlines caused me to develop people and time management skills .

Volunteering:

“Χαρίζω μια μέρα από το καλοκαίρι μου στο δάσος” 2008,2009


(Citizens Act for the protection of local forests. )
I volunteered a day of my summer staffing an observatory post watching over a section of Mount Olympus forest in
coordination with the fire brigade.
“Για τη ζωή δωρίζω” 2009
(Programme to raise public awareness about organ donation in the local community.)
I was part of a team that distributed leaflets to raise public awareness about organ donation. The programme involved
watching a seminar on the topic organized by the programme committee. At the end of the programme, we managed to
convince more than a 100 people from my district to become organ donors.

Extra curricular activities/Hobbies:

• Jiu Jitsu Club (Yellow belt)


Besides being a fun way to exercise, practising Jiu Jitsu has helped me gain discipline and focus and has enhanced my
confidence and self respect.
• FilmSoc
I enjoy cinema immensely and FilmSoc offers me the opportunity to watch a wide variety of films in the company of
interesting people.
• MathSoc & CompSoc
Being a member of MathSoc and CompSoc has allowed me to interact with my coursemates outside the lecture theatres
and has broaden my view on my subjects by allowing me to see them through my coursemates eyes. It is also a great
way to socialize and discover common interests outside of the subjects area.

In my spare time I enjoy literature, music and theatre, as well as engaging in heated debates with my friends over
a cup of tea.
