Where do you live?
I live in Cyprus in the Limassol District

What did you have for breakfast?
My breakfast contains foods that give energy and nutrients! Combined with good carbohydrates and fibre.

Describe your perfect day
The perfect day for me always starts with a smile. For me it is very important that the day begins with positive thoughts, a smile and optimism. I feel like if I smile in the daytime, she’ll pay me back. So, I always, as soon as I wake up, do some positive thinking. If I don’t have a positive thought, I put a song, I find a picture that will make me smile. Sometimes we wake up without appetite, but it’s up to us to give the direction we want in our day.

Best book ever read?
A very interesting book I recently read is Αληθινά Παράδοξα (Real Paradoxes) by Costantino Salis. A fun book with surprising truths. With a youthful mood he records paradoxes that are related to life, love and politics! Success is often the result of a series of failures we dared to experience. I think you have to be prepared to fail if you want to achieve something big in your life.

Best childhood memory?
I don’t have any special memories, but I had very beautiful family moments.

What is always in your fridge?
There are some basic things that if you always have them on your shopping list you can cook many recipes other easy others more complicated. I will mention some fruit vegetable jams.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Music from local radio stations of Cyprus or music transmission from Bluetooth mobile and mainly Greek music old and new Greek songs.

What’s your spirit animal?
We all hide a wild animal inside us but it is not easy to understand which one suits your character and temperament. Personally, I like snakes.

What are you most proud of?
I am proud of my goals and what I have achieved. Each of us sets various goals in our life, which we also strive to achieve. The feeling of joy and pride you feel when you achieve what you have tried hard for is indescribable. Unfortunately, many times we focus on what we have not yet achieved, so we do not focus on what we have achieved so far. It’s wrong to think like that. Focus on what you have accomplished on your own so far and then you will definitely feel proud of yourself.

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
Memento (2000) When you close your eyes, the world doesn’t stop moving. The story of a guy trying to get revenge for the murder of his wife, who suffers from temporary memory loss and remembers only the last 15 minutes. For this reason, he engraves tattoos with words on his body.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
I would meet my beloved grandmother if heaven would part with her for a while so that I could hug her and thank her and continue the beautiful conversations we had!

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
I would choose to go to my beloved mother’s childhood and watch how she grew up and what struggle she made until she created me.

What is your greatest fear?
Surely a family loss must have cost me too much! So, I think it’s a kind of fear!

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
I would say to my younger self with better awareness, you can make better choices. And with better choices, you’ll get better results.

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
The reasons I would stop dating someone would be if he was repeatedly late and not on time. If his behaviour was unkind and puts me in a difficult position!

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would definitely spend these 24 hours with my relatives, beautiful and loved ones!
