Q. Tell everyone a little bit about yourself and your role at Innovate Finance

A. I recently joined Innovate Finance at the position of Office Manager and Administrative Assistant. I studied Law, as well as European Studies and Modern languages. Furthermore, I am planning to start an MBA master degree from September 2022. I am fluent in French, Greek and English. 

Q. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time away from work?

A. In my spare time, I like to hang out with family and friends. I am very particular about my health as well, so if I have 1 or 2 hours of spare time I try to hit the gym or exercise at home. In the morning I also like to read newspapers and magazines as it is really important to be aware of current affairs around the globe.Furthermore, I am a nature-lover, I like to go hiking. Nature is like an escape to me, so mostly on weekends, I like to go for mini-trips.

Q. What are some of your favourite things about working in FinTech?

A. I believe that the FinTech industry brings many benefits. It provides you the opportunity to work in a fast-paced environment using the latest technologies. They are also experiencing rapid growth and are on the cutting edge of innovation, making the FinTech companies an exciting place to work in.

Q. You can invite any 3 people to your dinner party. Who do you choose and why? 

A. The people I would invite to my dinner party are firstly, Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón. I have always admired Frida. I love how she never gave up on herself, despite her situations and her medical conditions, she was upfront for anything and everything.  The second one would be Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel for her bravery. She completely rebelled and risked everything to make her dreams come true. And therefore, changed the dressing habits of many women. And finally the third one, would be Dalai Lama for his beliefs and teachings.
