An international school is defined mainly by the internationally-minded curriculum, following the principles of international education but also by fostering a globally-minded mentality in its student body and the entire community. Students by definition are international coming from different ethnicities, and nations, bringing a wealth of experiences and mindsets, looking to integrate but also to stand out. When the entire community is made of a similarly international background, then you have the ultimate combination. Our guest today is as international as someone can get. A Greek Cypriot, Sophia Stella Soseilos was born in Germany, lived in Cyprus, studied in South Africa, and moved to Greece in 1995. Sophia has a passion for teaching Art, inspiring creativity, and using design thinking in her education space.
