Kitab student, Amar Alsham Douro visited the Academic Centre to interview CYA President Mr. Alexis Phylactopoulos, about his mother Ismene’s story as a refugee. We are pleased to share this piece which was originally written by Amar for the Kitab Newsletter, it is especially beautiful and moving, as it resembles Amar’s own story as a refugee.
Sister Theoterpi née Christina McFall was a student at CYA in the fall semester of 2006. During this time, in an attempt to enrich her knowledge about her studies, concerning philosophy, Ancient Greek and environmental protection, she discovered the Holy Monastery of St. John. Read as she shares her remarkable life-changing CYA story with us.
Last Sunday my friend Xanthippi invited me over to spend the afternoon cooking with some other friends, the perfect introduction to Greek living. Just getting to her house required a long trip to the suburbs which revealed what daily life outside of the city center is like: here, happily, a pedestrian can walk without fear of being hit.
