Maria-Christina always had a bug for writing growing inside of her. She could write before she could speak and has been writing ever since.
She graduated with First Class Honours in European Studies and Modern Languages at the University of Manchester, UK, during which she had the opportunity to study for an ERASMUS year in Perugia, Italy. After graduating and gaining first-hand insight into the thrills of a newsroom, she was motivated to further her studies in Communication. She thus obtained a Masters with Distinction in Journalism Studies from Cardiff University, UK.
Since graduating she has worked with various newspapers in Cyprus, Greece and the UK, while she is also a collaborating editor with Huffington Post Greece, Analyst.gr, Enallaktikidrasi.com, European magazine Cafébabel.com, as well as The News Hub.
She is currently working in media affairs, producing reviews and press releases, and writing and editing documents of all sorts for both online and print publication. She is also involved in media monitoring, communication strategies and press events. She freelances as a journalist, writing on anything she finds interesting, and ranging from feature articles to opinion editorials. She has a particular focus on EU affairs and a strong interest in public affairs and international relations. She possesses excellent writing and communication skills, as well as strong computer skills.
A passionate writer and editor, Maria-Christina likes to be involved in every sector of communications and media. She is an avid linguist and also freelances as a translator. She can deal with all sorts of documents, including legal texts from and to Italian. In June 2014, she was named Translator of the Month by Cafébabel.com, and Babelian of the Month in February 2015. One of her short stories has also won first prize in the competition organized by the National Society of Greek Writers in 2014. In 2015 she also published her first book.
Fluent in Greek, English and Italian, she also speaks French, Spanish and German and seeks to learn more.
Maria-Christina is energetic, diligent, committed and devoted to the work she undertakes. She is responsible, delivering her work timely and accurately, and can multitask without losing track of details. She has a rich imagination, something that guides her in the stories she produces for her blog, loves to travel and discover new things and is constantly amazed by how little we really know of the world we live in.
