Freedom of Movement 29 - Athens
“I got my BSc in Tourism management studies from the Alexandrian Technological Institution of Thessaloniki. Following that, I moved to Guildford, UK where I got an MSc degree in Communication and International Management from the University of Surrey.
I currently work as an Account Manager in Booking.com. Before I moved back to Greece, I lived and worked in London for three years. I worked as a Sales Planner in TripAdvisor where I was based in Soho and as a front office supervisor in Blakes hotel, which is located in Kensington.
My whole professional career, so far, is built in the field of Tourism management. Free movement of people is a prerequisite for the tourism industry to survive. On my daily routine, I am communicating with people from all over the world, who are visiting Greece, for business or leisure. Free movement is highly related to my day-to-day job.
My brother lives in London with his family. My best friend is permanently based in Nottingham. My other best friend lives in Toulouse for the last three years. With half of my “family” living abroad, for me free movement is essential. There hasn’t been a single year since I returned to Greece, that I haven’t travelled to the UK to see them and spend some time with them.
If you’re faced with a choice that limits your ability to live and work in other places - think twice, and travel, before you run out of time. “
