About me

I am a history student in Athens, widely interested in Wikipedia, politics, history, geography with aspirations for becoming a university professor. Deeply interested in social subjects and the Wikimedia movement. I am an active participant of the students' movement in Greece, participating in protests and electoral processes inside the university. My other hobbies include photography, reading, and walking. I am also an admin in Greek Wikipedia (verify), although I think that it's rather responsibilities than rights that you get if you become an admin. Linguistic skills: Native language Greek, English as semi-native language, basic German and a few grasp, although learning now, of Russian.

My work

I love to write in Greek and other Wikipedias. I also participate in WMUG Greece as a member, and try to promote Wikipedia. I also work for the betterment of Greek Wikipedia by organising meetups, improving pages, and helping the users to find their path on the project. I have wrote 7,600 articles in Greek, some fifty in English, I edit Wikimedia Commons and add photos there, also doing some patrolling work from time to time in other Wikipedias. I am heavily interested on Wikipedia statistics. I have a dream: To see the developing world's Wikipedias in par with the ones of the developed world. So I collaborate for this with Wikipedians from abroad. For the history, I began to contribute in 2013 in Greek (when I was nine years old), but only periodically until November 2016, when I pernamently began to contribute there. For the next 12 months I have a target to buy my first camera to upload better photos for Wikimedia Commons (phone takes some good photos but camera works better in terms of quality) and organise my first Wikipedia offline activity, which took place in November 2023. In 2018 I had worked a lot in Translatewiki and translated more than 12,000 messages, although now I rarely contributed. I am also involved in the CEE Youth Group, Wiki for Minorities and now I do research and work for new projects of Greek Wikispace.

Wikimedia events attended/will attend


You can get a brief introduction of myself: here, once you go in slide 20 and install the slide to see my brief introduction video, my brief introduction during CEE Youth Group presentation in CEE Meeting 2023, Tbilisi (photo here). I couldn't attend due to a reexamination of a tough course in university.

  • Brief online speech in Viki Kadam which took place in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan (19 November 2023) via online connection, together with Barbara Klen, which presented the CEE Hub. I spoke about the movement, it's importance and CEE Youth Group as most attendees were young people. It was done as one of the hosts offered the opportunity to CEE Youth Group members to come and say hi to the attendees during CEE Hub presentation.
  • I also spoke in CEE Catch up with Mari Avetisyan of Armenia about CEE Youth Group, 8 May 2024.
  • I had a talk with Maryana Iskander, Head of Wikimedia Foundation about Youth topics in 11 March 2024.

Also I am working to promote Wikimedia in universities and do outreach. I try my best, however the delays are related to the practicalities of the professors I collaborate (academics have a lot of responsibilities). Moreover my plans include Women's day outreach and activities, though the attempts to do it physically didn't eventualise this year. Empowering Youth in Wikimedia is also my target

Outreach events conducted


More are being planned and proposed. I did some attempts for Women's Day workshop however we couldn't conduct them because the contacted organisations didn't approved it (lack of space). However many events are being under discussion, including a virtual webinar for International Youth Day for Nigerian Wikimedians, and various projects in my university on fall and winter 2024-25.

Other roles

  • I support Wikivibrance, and I am one of the key members in Wiki for Minorities, member of the organising team in the conference project.
  • I am also member of the organiser team in CEE Spring contest, the flagship editathon of CEE Wikipedias and one of the most significant editathons in global scale. Furthermore, I am involved in various things within the movement, particularly those youth-related and I aspire to help the Greek community to grow internally and get a better role in the Wikimedia movement in the long term.
  • Together with Jan Beránek of Czechia, Comms team member for Wikimania 2024, I am co-running the CEE Youth Group Instagram page. That has allowed me to get some knowledge of the field of movement communication.
  • Regional coordinator for Project Korikath, CEE region.
  • I participate in the Wikimania youth program of CEE Youth Group.
