My involvement in Erasmus+ started with Erasmus exchange programme and doing EVS allowed me to work with youth through EU funded programmes such as EVS, youth exchanges, Leonardo da Vinci and Training Courses, for one year. I have been working as a project assistant in a project which supports the implementation of EU-funded grant schemes for the Turkish Cypriot community since 2015.

BRIEF BIO | ΣΥΝΤΟΜΟ ΒΙΟΓΡΑΦΙΚΟ:
After four boring years of completing BAs in Business, working with young people during EVS and then doing my MAs in Social Anthropology allowed me to broaden my horizon in understanding human societies and cultural relations as well as the power of empathy when we focus on similarities instead of differences.
Working with and for youth is important and I do believe non-formal education is one of the most powerful tools of our generation which is yet undervalued. Therefore, it is crucial to work on providing young people access to equal opportunities and rights all around the world.
