    Athanasia left Greece 22 years ago to Cyprus. 

    A teacher of modern and ancient Greek history and literature, she left Greece originally for 6 months to follow her husband, George Kazamias, who had been offered a temporary position at the University of Cyprus. Yet, the temporary position became permanent and she’s been in Cyprus for 22 years. They left with 2 sons and now have 3 sons. She still teaches history today, after a 10-year break to raise her children. 

    For her, home is still Thessaloniki, Greece. During her interview, she declares that “Migration made me stronger”.
