8. Tell me a bit about you...
I am Hungarian, having settled down 12 years ago in Cyprus, a beautiful Mediterranean island which I love. What is not to love about the summer days that you can spend at the beach with a good book in your hands, running to the sea to freshen up when the sun starts to become too hot! Also the safety that this island offers, where you are not always feeling pressured into locking your car, or your door or not always afraid to walk after dark as a girl on your own.
I am currently working in a corporate environment, but my dream is to leave all this behind and start out on my own as a jewelry designer/artist.
