I am 22 years old and I live and study in the best city in the world – Cape Town! I study Politics, International Relations, and Economic History at the university of Cape Town and with this I plan on changing the world one day.
My Hellenic roots stem from my father’s side of the family. He grew up in Athens and I am fortunate enough to visit Greece every year, which I hold very close to my heart. Travel is one of my greatest rewards in life! I love art and all things creative, and because physical health is just as important as mental health, I’ve recently taken up Muay Thai. I love the outdoors, and was thrilled to find out that Miss Hellene incorporated an environmental element this year.
I entered Miss Hellene as I thought it would be a good platform to meet interesting, like-minded young women of Hellenic descent! I also wanted to give back to our unique community we share as South African Hellenes as it has given me so much throughout my life.
This journey has very much surpassed my expectations. Not only have I gained valuable knowledge, but I have also made lifelong friends!
