- A guy from Greece, tell us who you really are?
Vasilis! That’s me. A super energetic and positive guy who is always up for something and never says no to new challenges. I’m someone with huge ambitions who wants to do great things and conquer the world with kindness.
- You came to Estonia for your Erasmus and now you have been here for one year. What’s up with that?
Well, life is always full of surprises. I was about to stay here for one semester but when I realised how many cool things I can do here I decided to extend my Erasmus for another semester. I really like it here, I’ve met so many nice people and done so many amazing activities here. I’ve learnt numerous valuable lessons this year that have all made me a better person. I still have no idea when I’m going to leave and where I will go.
- Reveal your secrets – 3 facts about yourself.
I love coffee.
I am a perfectionist.
When I was young I wanted to be an astronaut and travel to space (I still do).
- What would you say are the biggest differences between Greece and Estonia?
There are so many of them! I think the biggest is the weather. Greece is always sunny and warm and you rarely see snow in most of the areas. In Estonia, everything is dark and cold most of the days and seeing the sun in the sky is like a rare phenomenon. Also, the people in Greece are usually very loud and expressive about their emotions which might seem weird for the Estonians. But cultural differences are awesome and you get more open minded when you get to experience them.
- What has working in The Ebster taught you the most?
Being in the Student Council and doing all those projects has been amazing so far. Writing and interviewing in Ebster made me find out new aspects about myself. I hadn’t considered doing that before but now I really enjoy it and there is more to come in the future. Stay tuned!
- Does the sun shine a little brighter in the South?
Oh, it most definitely does! But I believe that the sun shines the brightest when you have people you love around you.
- Tell us about your usual day in Greece, from morning to night.
I’m going to describe you a casual chill summer day in my hometown. First thing after waking up is to call your friends to arrange to go for coffee and breakfast. After chilling in the cafeteria for a couple of hours it’s time to get home, pack up your bag and get ready to go to the beach to get your daily overdose of sun. Chilling at the beach means lots of fresh fruits, cocktails, swimming, playing games in the sand and, of course, more coffee. When the sun is about to set, it’s time to leave and go hit the gym. After that you get home, take a quick shower and get ready for some tropical vibes in a beach bar until the sun rises.
- If you could be the president of the universe, what would you do and why?
First of all, it’s only a matter of time so be prepared! I would try to follow a direction that would break all the stereotypes, make people more open minded and willing to accept differentiality, because this is how humans can evolve and build a better world. Also, I’m a strong believer of technology, so I would try to promote that as well.
- Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Working in a big international company that provides big values and services for every single person in this world. By that time I also want to become a great investor and an awesome public speaker.
- A quote that keeps you running.
„Be happy, it’s better.“
