Personal and social development has always been Thalia Rizou’s passion. She learned to appreciate being part of a community with the Girl Guides growing up and AIESEC later on and she chose to study International and European Relationships out of a sense of civic responsibility. During her studies, she explored this by participating in several initiatives (festivals, conferences, events) in Greece and Europe as a volunteer, as an organizer and after graduation as a full-time project manager. She loves motivating others and bonding through hands-on, inspiring hard work. She loves listening and understanding deeply every new challenge. She’d love to see her city grow through entrepreneurship initiatives, social responsibility, innovation, and technology.
