FIELDS OF EXPERTISE & INTEREST:
- Self-development and Youth Participation
- Human Rights Education – Social Inclusion
- Sports/ Dancing and Outdoor Activities
In recent years, I had the opportunity to participate in several Non-Formal Learning programs, both in Cyprus and abroad. As a youth trainer at the Cyprus Youth Council since 2017 and as a board member of the NGO Youth for Exchange and Understanding Cyprus, YEU Cyprus (2014-2017), I have gained a wealth of experiences that have helped me to act more effectively and dynamically among young people.
I have strengthened my field of knowledge in terms of new methodological approaches and techniques, to involve as many young people as possible in the various actions. Equally important I consider the cultivation of social and communication skills. This kind of education contributes to a more substantial, multifaceted development of the individual, as well as to a more active participation in society. For this reason, I try to enrich my material bank with useful practices and new ideas, with the ultimate goal of designing worthwhile programs, both locally and internationally.
I believe that the spirit of multicultural mutual understanding and respect for diversity and human rights are key factors in our current multicultural community. That is why I try to deal with the planning of organized actions, outside the standard education system, which contributes to the cultivation of citizens with a multifaceted character. Furthermore, considering my active involvement in Sports and Outdoor Activities, and as a Licensed Zumba Fitness Instructor for adults and children, I use Zumba as an educational tool to encourage an active involvement of young people in such activities and to lead to a more active lifestyle. I am always open to any new idea and proposal as long as there is active participation on behalf of young people.
