What year did you graduate from the IB Diploma?
I graduated in 2012.
What University did you attend, where? What did you study?
I went to the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands and did a Bachelor’s
degree in European Law.
Any exciting research, special groups, projects etc.?
I had some wonderful experiences so far: I was a mentor for Moot Court Competition,
took part in the Common European Asylum Policy working group and
joined the university’s theatre club and water polo team!
What’s next for you?
That’s a question I cannot easily answer. Frankly, I do not know. I like life in
Greece, but my career opportunities there are limited. Even though I love my
country, my experience in The Netherlands was, to say the least, invaluable.
I’m interested in leaving for another country for some time to gain more
insights. I am currently taking French classes while looking for internships in
Greece. If that remains fruitless, I am thinking of leaving for France next year.
That is to say, living abroad has probably been the richest experience I’ve ever
had in terms of personal development, and that is why I would like to experience
life in a third country, too!
