Learning life’s single happiness criterion: Petroula Karagianni
Born 30 years ago in Athens and raised here, Petroula graduated from AUEB in 2005 and straight after moved to Rotterdam, The Netherlands to work in the global leadership team of AIESEC. When Rotterdam started to become too familiar, she moved to Zurich, Switzerland to work in the Banking industry, in the Finance and Strategy areas. That is when she decided to have a break and redefine the way she saw reality shaping around and ahead of her. Determined to follow her passion for Education, she quit her job, went on a soul-search and after a few months started her Masters on Educational Leadership, she started blogging her ideas around Education and started working with a few organizations that support entrepreneurs in Greece, that provide funds for education in the developing world and that offer cultural immersion programs. After 7 years living abroad, she decided to come back to Greece in January 2012, where she started working with AUEB in the area of Research and Academic Affairs project management. She loves traveling, as she has already been in 37 countries and she believes in the power that each one of us has to make our dreams our reality.
