I am a journalist and blogger based in Dublin, Ireland. Originally from Greece, I settled in Ireland about 13 years ago. Since then, I have been blogging in various European and EU related portals about the continent's politics and social issues. Six years ago I have decided to study journalism part time and I have completed my studies four years later. Henceforth, I have been writing and blogging constantly for various online platforms, about EU politics and social issues in two languages, English and Greek. I have published work on Euronews' Generation Y Blog, OneEurope, OVI Magazine, OVI Greece, Apopseis.gr, Vocal Europe, Katoikos.eu, as well as on my own blog, The Eblana European Democratic Movement. I was the winner of the "Tell us your Story" competition, run and organised by the EU Commission. Therefore I have been invited to the Single Market Forum, hosted by the then Polish Presidency of the EU in Krakow, in October 2011. Additionally, I was one of the 14 bloggers from around Europe, invited by the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to be present at the closing of the European Year of Citizens conference in Vilnius, in December 2013, to be present and report from the meetings. My passions include writing, blogging, photography, traveling, painting and music. I have been managing the twitter and Facebook accounts of various platforms I have been writing and I am very competent in social media.
