"The milestone that helped me realize that creation is the purpose of my life happened in Kythera. The beginning may have been insignificant, but it was the first and most decisive step of my career in handmade jewelry."
- So we visited a small souvenir store. Enthusiastic about my creations and determined to sell them, I hesitantly entered. I felt secure and indescribably confident, even though I was only 10 years old. I proudly showed them to the shop lady, waiting for her response. “I will buy,” said the lady, “even though I have my suppliers. But I admire your talent and courage.” This small beginning was also the first step to take my creations more seriously. Since that summer, I have been spending time making such crafts and giving them away to my relatives and friends.
