My name is Aristea Protonotariou, borned and raised in Kythera. I’m a 24 years old girl who moved away from home 6 years ago in order to study. I moved to Athens where i tried to work and study at the same time. Today i am a young journalist and a librarian (working on my theses)
Few months ago i grant a scholarship to Columbia Journalism School in New York City, for a video production course that last 3 weeks. I did it. I actually came back to Greece last Tuesday. The experience was amazing. I realized that the educational infrastructure abroad are something unattended for the greek educational system.
So, after this experience i would love to apply for the full MA program to the Columbia Journalism School (more info https://journalism.columbia.edu/programs#Compare_M_S___M_S__Data__amp__M_A_ ) but the fees are extremely expensive.
I created a fundraising page online for my cause. I think that’s the only way for me to make this happen.
Lately, economical crisis "knocked" Greece's door. Due to that, my dream to study in USA seems to be unreachable. I know that my personal future in my country doesn't exist. I need to find a way to change the way that things taking and "fly" away. I just need to get what i deserve! I have only one life to live and I have to live it right!
Thank you all for your help!
