MMS: FOB | Class of 2015

 

I come from a small village called Spilies Konistron in Greece. I attended Athens University of Economics and Business, where I majored in accounting and finance. Immediately after graduation at the end of June, I took a plane to the U.S. and became a part of Team Fuqua.

While an undergrad, I was an accounting intern at Bank of Greece in Athens. I plan to build on the quantitative and interpersonal skills I acquired there, while being enrolled in the MMS program.

Outside the classroom, I regularly play soccer and futsal with friends, and also enjoyed being a semi-pro for a short spell a couple of years ago. I am a huge fan of all-time classic American movies as well as modern-day sitcoms. Furthermore, I love traveling, cycling, hiking and reading comic books. As an amateur, my favorite hobby is landscape photography.

Even though I have been in Durham for a relatively small amount of time, I already cannot wait to share my experiences so far with the world. Being open to trying new things and getting out of your comfort zone is a key factor to get 100% out of your Duke experience.

I am thrilled to have this opportunity and believe me, this year is going to be legen—wait for it…

Fuqua Activities: Member of the Finance, Sports, and Food & Beverages clubs. Also part of the intramural soccer team.…dary! LEGENDARY!
