Personal History

Born in Cyprus and married with 3 children. I have on sister ( younger than me ) and with my parents coming from Famagusta.
I went to primary school for six years and then the Secondary school followed for another three years and at the end, the Lyceum for three years more. In addition to my formal Education my extra Curriculum activities always included sports ( e.g: Soccer, Judo, Track & Field) and music. I also attended a Private School of English language classes for most of my time. At the age of 18 i had my military service for twenty six months.
I then ”moved” to Budapest for four years, where i started my studies, which eventually lei me to achieve a Master Diploma in Physical Education. During this time i taught swimming and fitness to children and adults, as well as other sports to children. The same time i was performing my own trainings in different sports in which i was specialized.
I return to Cyprus and i’m specialized in Physical Education which i found immensely enjoyable and interesting. I’m happy and satisfied in my chosen career, but i would like to further my teaching experiences.
