Especially when it comes to my development as a professional and today delivering top tier quality results. Following you can read my story of why and how I can be the best professional you can hire.
From a young age, I always had the curiosity to understand what was behind everything that surrounds us and how people were involved with those processes that create things that we need. From there, I started wondering what is management, economics, accounting, finance and anything else that is key in creating and maintaining a group of resources that produces the solution to a need, and how each one played its own role.
Managing and accounting was something I was found doing very early, specifically at the age of 13, when me and some friends decided to form a music group and start making money out of concerts. Since then up until 2014 that we kept the band active, except from being a musician in the band, I was also responsible for the organization of our concerts-events, the financials of the group and closing deals with sponsors for our concerts, events and album recordings. Because of the enthusiasm I had from our band's local success, when I graduated from high school I decided to go and study music at the University of Sussex in Brighton, UK. That decision though, made me realize that what I was passionate about was not me playing music, but rather me managing and undertaking the right tasks and decisions to make an organization work successfully, like I did with my band.
After the 1st year of studying in the UK, I took the decision to pursue what I really wanted to do and returned back to Cyprus to start all over again, applying for studies at Frederick University, Nicosia for B.A. in Business Administration - Accounting. I started my studies there in September 2010 and it proved to be a great decision since at the end of the Fall Semester of my third year, I was accepted to transfer to the University of Cyprus for the B.Sc. in Finance due to my exceptional academic performance, in which I continued my studies on the spring semester of 2013.
In March 2013, I had applied for internship at Hyperion Systems Engineering Ltd, Cyprus, where I was accepted and started my full 3 months internship from end of May 2013 until August 2013. At the end of my internship I was offered to continue working alongside my studies as a part time employee, a challenge I immediately accepted. My position was account's assistant, reporting directly to the Financial Manager of the firm, initially having minor responsibilities and gradually getting more and more duties such as bookkeeping, reconciliation of vendors accounts, customer accounts, bank accounts, assisting in the preparation of the financial statements and various other general and administrative duties.
Apart from the experience at Hyperion Systems Engineering, while I was in Barcelona for exchange studies, I worked as a Team Leader Ambassador for the area of Barcelona for a Berlin based start-up, RoundhereApp GmbH where I had many leadership responsibilities like recruiting new ambassadors, closing and managing partnerships, organizing events, create promotional and marketing strategies and manage the budget for Barcelona. As soon as I returned from Barcelona in summer 2015, I also founded my own company, called Twosumm, a web-based platform that allows university students search and connect with each other for studying together online like in a Skype call session.
Today, I work half days as Programme Administration Officer for IDEA CY – Bank of Cyprus, the first and largest Accelerator and Incubator program in Cyprus founded by the Bank of Cyprus, the largest financial organization in Cyprus and member of the London Stock Exchange.
In overall I am a very friendly and social person and I have always been delivering projects of various kinds with great results. My perseverance and intuition are an invaluable asset for any project I undertake.
