Angeliki believes in progress that comes through a steady and continuous improvement in everything you do. Those who give themselves time to plan, eventually they give time to think through all of the aspects, carefully. Those who grow gradually and progress steadily are the ones who are the most successful. In other words, vision with action can bring success.
She seized every opportunity to escape to the beautiful sea of her favourite island, Hydra in Greece, where she is originally from.
