From an unknown young girl on a small island in Greece whose only hope was to escape poverty to the Chancellor who has occupied the news multiple times, my life has been full of unforgettable experiences. Yet, through all my travels and trepidations, one is for sure: I always put my values, my work ethic and family first. Once upon a time that would have been enough to live happily ever after. Not in real life. Reality is like a swing in perpetual motion. One second you are looking at the skies and the other you are facing the ground. What my values, my work ethic and my family did for me was to keep me safe and protected; and I could not have wished for anything more.
