Who am I?
The first time I was asked who I am, my mind switched off.
What does it define me? My studies? My work? My interests?
I guess a bit of everything. Or not.
- Enthusiastic young spirit!
- I am Greek-Cypriot and Orthodox Christian.
- I am a bachelors holder from University of Cyprus, Computer Science Department.
- I am a masters holder of the European Master in Distributed Computing (EMDC) from both universities:
→ Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Barcelona.
→ Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm.
- I am proudly an ex-intern at Telefonica in Barcelona – my most valuable internship ever, collaborating with the most amazing people.
- I am fan of Barca!
- I am a dreamer. . . 🙂
What do I like/love/need/prefer?
- I love traveling and meeting my friends (and their friends) (even strangers) living around the globe.
- I get excited by exploring countries, mountains, the sea, ideas and thoughts.
- I love my dog and generally all animals (except spiders and the whole category they belong to).
- I like games with rackets; squash, table tennis, tennis.
- I get fascinated with start-ups and entrepreneurship.
- I put my hopes in crazy ideas – that’s where innovation is lying around.
- I get stubborn when my code does not work.
- I become dedicated-to-death when my code continues not working.
- I feel the biggest relief and satisfaction – everything rolls in its right place again – when code eventually works just right!
- I feel refreshed by socializing, meeting new personalities, listening to extraordinary stories, witnessing unseen moments!
- I need 1 hour of peace and isolation per day to organize my thoughts.
- I need coffee but I don’t like it! I prefer frappé!
- I prefer clara, but beer is also ok.
- I admire people who make time for “everything”, who are confident but not arrogant, who are honest but not cruel, who have strong personality and remain humble.
Oh, I forgot to introduce myself. I am Maria. Nice to meet you!
