‘From an ancient city to a metropolis.’
Pavlos Vranas, University of East London, student
The Olympic Games were created in Greece. Despite current economic difficulties in Greece making them feel concerned and uncertain about their future, Sofia Ichtiaroglou (20), Pavlos Vranas (23) and Zoe Chavali (21) continue to hope and believe in a better future. Watching the build up to the London Olympic and Paralympic Games in London makes us feel proud and closer to our homeland.
