Career Path: Educational Consultant, British Council Study Abroad
Location: Athens, Greece

I enjoy working on my own and I love all of my three jobs as they are something I always wanted to do. A Photographer because I love to capture the moment, an English teacher because I want to make kids love English, and Educational Consultant so I can move people to study abroad - like I did.
