After working for several decades as a health professional, Panagiota decided to pursue her true passion of Hellenic Culture & Children’s Education. Panagiota was inspired to write books as a way of preserving the wealth of Hellenic heritage and passing it onto the next generations with the same care and passion that it was given to her from her parents and grandparents.
