I am Anna, and I am from Greece! I work as a crafts instructor for natives and tourists, and as a columnist covering cultural topics. In the summer, I occasionally work on the sail boats as a hostess. This allows me to meet people from all over the world, and also to travel to the Greek islands, and go swimming in our beautiful seas! I love art and freedom, and I enjoy being with other people and sharing cultures.
My passion is for crafts that have to do with chemical processes that work like experiments. Growing up, this love of experiments led me to study physics, and that was the beginning of my current focus on making natural handmade soaps and creams. The idea that unique results can come from raw and fresh materials excites me. This is why I also love cooking! As an instructor, what I have found most exciting is to teach kids, because they are always positive, open-minded, and well-intentioned. Dyeing the eggs makes kids so happy! When I teach older children and adults, I enjoy the chance to go a little deeper and communicate interesting stuff about chemistry. Creating soaps and creams with others gives me this valuable opportunity.
Greece is known to people around the world for its captivating islands, beaches, and delicious food. It is also considered to be the mother of theater, philosophy, and democracy. People here like to discuss a lot, and we are very close with our families. Swimming in summer is perhaps what makes me never want to leave this country. On a typical summer day, we go to the beach and then gather with the family for lunch. In the evening we might go to the theater, or go for a walk as long we are in good company.
