Athina Chrysafi

Volunteer

Hi! My name is Athina Chrysafi. I was born in Serres and I live there. I have studied Educational and Social Policy in the University of Macedonia and I am a special education teacher and sociologist. At this moment I am studying my postgraduate in Creative Writing. I love meeting, helping people and traveling. Learning new languages and information about other civilizations is, in my opinion, the best type of education someone can have,as it opens our minds uniquely. Additionally, I like reading literature, listening to music non- stop, watching movies and series and discussing social issues. Art in every form is the way to express myself. Volunteering at Praxis and participating in Erasmus + gives me the opportunity to combine all of these interests and realize many of my countless dreams. I would like to acquire new skills and a more extroverted character and I think that generally the experience of volunteering and Erasmus can change a person only positively.

Volunteer

Hey guys! My name is Anastasia Lioliou, I'm 22 years old and I study interior architecture in Serres. In my free time I like riding my bicycle and listening to music. One thing that you need to know about me is that I'm really social and I love meeting new people. I choose to be a volunteer because I love traveling and creating new memories with interesting people that share the same passion and goals. In my life I have travelled a lot with my family and my friends but now with erasmus+ I have found a new way of travelling that combines volunteering purposes too. The main reason that I choose to be a volunteer is because I like to offer in my society and spread awareness for important and sensitive subjects that concern all the people around the world. I'm looking forward to meeting you all.

Hey Everyone, My name is Nikoleta (or just Nikol if that's easier). I come from Greece and I'm 21 years old. I study Interior design and architecture. I love reading books and comics (yes a big marvel nerd here). I love travelling and learning new things about art. I recently became a volunteer to Praxis so I can be more active in my community and more aware of the problems our society is dealing with. By volunteering you can learn so much, help other people and even yourself.

Maria Gkanoglou

Volunteer

Hey everyone, my name is Maria, I am 22 years old and, currently, I reside in Serres, where I work as a trainee lawyer. In the future I wish to work as a legal practitioner on an international level and to engage in human-rights related matters, such as multicultural ones. Other than that, I love art - there isn't a single space in my apartment that isn't covered in paintings - and photography and reading books. Most importantly, I love sharing experiences with other people, since I wholeheartedly believe that common experiences help bring people together regardless of their differences. Volunteering in Praxis provides me the opportunity to put in use all my skills in order to help the foreigh volunteers, to engage in projects with other volunteers - local or foreigner ones - thus creating new and solid experiences. I do hope that I will have the chance to expand my experiences by participating in Erasmus + projects, thus using my skills and meeting new people outside local boundaries.

Fist of all let me introduce myself , my name is Fani , I am 20 years old and study Midwifery Science in Thessaloniki. Generally speaking , since I can remember myself I have been involved in many organizations and volunteering projects, due to I really like the feeling of offering … So, one day I decided to join the wonderful family of “PRAXIS” and since then my life has changed. Have you ever felt, that you found the meaning of your life that you have been looking for so long? I did! Now, the only word that perfectly describe what I feel is INVESTMENT. What I mean is that the organization changed my life, I met wonderful people, I participated in different activities, I helped organize a charity event, I traveled and improved my knowledge by gaining experiences. I feel very lucky that I am officially one of the “children’’ of the family PRAXIS .

I'm Vicky and I'm local resident of Serres. After finishing my studies I came back to my hometown without having something meaningful to be involved in. So I decided to join praxis as a volunteer. Why I believe I do something meaningful now? There is nothing more beautiful than offering to your society and same time improving yourself and skills and leave your impact!

Katerina Chatziathanasiou

Volunteer

Hi everyone! My name is Katerina and I was born and raised in Serres. I am a social worker and curently I’m studying for my Master in special education. I love traveling, reading books and watching series. I’ve always loved to help people and offer as I can to my town, so that’s why I was always a volunteer in various organizations. But being a volunteer in Praxis is the best one so far. Getting to know new volunteers from all over Europe and help them with the projects, apart from being a very fun and creative experience, it also helps me to grow personally. Αppart from making a positive contribution to the local community, Praxis also cooperates with various organizations in Europe, offering the opportunity to young Greek citizens to experience the erasmus+ programs, which are a lifetime experience.

Nikos Verros

Volunteer
Hello, my name is Nikos Verros. I was born and I live in Serres. In my free time I like to find ways to experience life from different views and learn more about the human nature. I’m interested about the harmonization between nature and human. That’s why my choices lead me joining the Praxis team to learn more about that and mainly for non-formal education. Also I like to meet, help and observe people trying figure out practical solutions for everyday esoteric problems. My experience so far with Erasmus + projects is still in progress but I can’t wait to expand it.
