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.

Guess Who?!

  • 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!
