About Me

CURRENT MISSION

discover the world :)

ABOUT ME

I'm a 24 years old psychology student of greek origin, currently having my Masters degree in Clinical Psychology in Paris. I like making new friends and learning about other cultures! I'm a city lover and I consider myself being a citizen of the world.
I love travelling, reading literature, watching films and having good time with friends (usually with a bottle of wine and board games). I'm also vegetarian and generally interested in defending animal rights.

PHILOSOPHY

A worthliving life is a life full of relationships...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to jump all borders between countries. I believe it's up to us to construct a better world where racism has no place. It's fun and really interesting at the same time to communicate with people from other countries and different backgrounds.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My experiences until now are all positive. I've met a lot of wonderful and interesting people, with whom I had a great time either when offering a couch or being hosted.

Interests

I love litterature and reading books, studying psychology, travelling and learning new things and foreign laguages! Other interests of mine are, among others, music, of course, history, dancing. I am also interested in politics.

Music, Movies & Books

Jeu d'enfants, Amelie, The hours, My name is Sam, Mulholland drive, Lost highway (what a soundrack!), A very long engagement, In the name of the father, ...
The name of the rose, The bell jar, When nietzsche wept, (and generally all yalom' s books)... as for the music, Neil young, Rory gallagher, Babylon circus, , Ska-p, Massilia sound system, a lot of greek musicians and bands like Natassa Mpofiliou and Miltos Pasxalidis.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've visited Auschwitz in Poland. This experience had a strong impact on me, I cannot forget the place and the feelings I had at that time. I think everyone should visit it, in order to make sure that such events would not happen again.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some greek and cooking vegeterian meals! I would like to learn other languages and traditional dances as well.

Argentina, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Romania, United Kingdom
