About me

I am a Global Journalism Fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs, specialized in culture. I have written for publications of international acclaim such as Maclean's magazine, VICE, and the National Post. Currently looking for a job or internship that will allow me to gain experience in my field and to keep growing as a writer and culture expert. I hold an MA in Comparative Cultural Analysis from the University of Amsterdam and a BA from Amsterdam University College, where I majored in Literature and Film. In addition to my native Greek, I speak English, Spanish, French and Dutch.
