Looking back, I can say with certainty, that was indeed fortunate to have studied at the 4th Technical College in Chalandri, the vocation that inspired me, which in turn, has brought me to where I am today, a VET Ambassador for Greece.Hidden talents and abilities where discovered in me during my VET training, as an assistant in Medical and Biological Laboratories graded with honor and distinction which paved my way in life.Studies have proven that the key to success is 99% based on sheer effort and creative thinking acquired in Technological training and 1% on inspiration. I began to look at what else could be done in Health and wellbeing. Embraced with ambition and added confidence, I wanted to help in society by promoting a better quality of life through my profession as a Secialized Nurse in Pediatric care, since 2002, Hematology (Blood Donation) and as a teacher in adult education with 10 years of experience.
Volunteering during the economic crisis in Greece was paramount. As a Nurse I “spread my wings” like my character “Droplette” in my educationally approved book “Tied together with a fine red thread. Droplette and Pygasus” promoting blood donation and educating children and teenagers to value life by giving blood.As a beacon and voice I became a Radio Producer for “Communication” the municipal radio net work of Iraklio 94FM, broadcasting the weekly program “Its in your hand. Save a life”. A program of current activities involving volunteer work, celebrities, cultural events and social issues.Vocational guidance in education is the light for the future generations in Greece and in the EU. Vocational Skills are lifelong journey that can be acquired through our educational institutions. These institutions provide keys for a treasure trove of experience that young people can get working in their field. To sum up, becoming a fully qualified Pediatric Nurse and trainer it opened my horizons to reach the Crest of my profession. Becoming a VET Ambassador I could not foresee but I know I can do more, because I have seen what can be done.
