In Nikos Mouyiaris’ Memory
From a Thank You Note of a Cypriot American Student

“…If I had to choose one thing that meant the most to me and stuck with me through this trip was the friendships that developed throughout our time in Greece. I went from being extremely shy and having very few conversations with anyone on day one of the trip to having 12 close friends I now consider family! The bond we created with each other will last far beyond the scope of our 10 days together in Greece. These friendships will last a life time because we all share amazing memories together of our time in Greece…
..Our trip to Greece has positively impacted my life by helping me get closer to my culture and learn to open up to more people..
..Nikos Mouyiaris’ name and memory will forever be associated with one of, if not, the best week of my life.”
