    Hey everyone! My name is Maria and I am from Greece. I am currently studying English Language and Linguistics in the International Faculty of the University of Sheffield in Thessaloniki and I am also a student in drama school in the University of Aristotle. I love teaching, travelling,eating and making my dreams come true. I like exploring different subjects intellectually and professionally and this is one of the reasons I've applied for an internship in the USE. I've never expected to get involved with enterprise but that's the magic of life after all! You never know what's next! Working at the USE is definitely an experience worth living!
