“It is under the greatest adversity that there exists the greatest potential for doing good, both for oneself and others.”

- Dalai Lama

I was born in The Republic of Cyprus during a historical period of political and militant upheaval.

I was quite early exposed to adversities which ultimately ignited an innate fire within me for warmth, compassion, truth seeking, understanding, sense of personal and social responsibility and for action for positive change and transformation.

My life experiences undeniably inspired and initiated the foundation of the path to my current profession.

It is within this backdrop that I have learned that our circumstances and humanness naturally predispose us to challenges and vulnerabilities - periods of uncertainty, uneasiness, purposelessness, meaninglessness, pain, suffering and discontent.

Nonetheless, I additionaly learned that, through these transitory susceptibilities and circumstances, our resiliencies may sore to reach the height of our potentials for growth, active sense of purpose and a meaningful existence.

I believe that our courage and responsibility may be activated to transform our challenges and susceptibilities into compassionate understanding, acceptance, forgiveness, growth and wisdom, gratitude and a purposeful and meaningful existence.
