Léna is finishing up a Master’s degree in Intercultural Mediation in the Mediterranean Region and currently writing her thesis about the solidarity network in Exarcheia. She enjoys traveling and the diversity of this world and has a soft spot for new culinary experiences. Léna has previously volunteered with displaced and vulnerable populations in France, Peru, and Morocco. What drove her to Athens was the multiplicity, creativity, and dynamism of citizen-led responses to the multi-layer crisis going on in Greece and once here, she particularly fell for the unique combination of western and eastern features in the city.
