I hold a BA in Sociology from Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences in Athens, Greece and a Msc in Political Science (Specialized in Political Behavior and Communication) from Leiden University in the Netherlands. I have spent a part of my BA studies as an ERASMUS exchange student in Krakow, Poland. I fluently speak English, and in a medium level French. Within other activities, I have taken part in various conferences in Greece and abroad concerning human rights and their violations, in two MUN confereces in the Human Rights Assembly and i have participated in NGO's , such as WWF and Doctors of the World.
