My Story

Published by in General Articles ·
Tags: personalstorypurposeJourney
My name is Nena Meimaris and I live in Katerini, a small town in the northern part of Greece. After living in Boston Mass for 30 years I returned to my homeland to involve myself in a project called Interbalkan Institute for Educational and Economic Development.  One of my passions is to help women be achievers, create their own future and become life long learners.  So I developed this website to show their creations around the world. This is a new journey  for me, I was a teacher in the Boston Public Schools for about 25 years  and loved it. But as they say “you know when a change is coming your way” and I knew I had to make a change and try something new. There is a lot of learning going on in my life right now but I welcome it, it’s a new season and new seasons are good seasons. I am planning to stay in touch with all of you who care to see what’s going on in a small town in the northern part of Greece, with high unemployment especially among the youth! One thing that I discovered  through this journey is that all of us have amazing creativity that the daily routine and the normal  flow  in our lives covers it up. I want to make this creativity come alive in various ways.
