How long have you interned for PPI – Cyprus and why do you like working with the organization?

What do you do for PPI – Cyprus on a daily basis?

“I help with a lot of office work, organizing events with Steph and Ashley, and assisting with the trainings and twinnings.”

What is your favorite thing about PeacePlayers?

“To work in an organization that is associated with sports because I love sports. Any sport would be fine with me because sports are a great way for kids and adults to come together to have fun and learn about each other.”
