JA Greece Alumna Maria Kokala's testimony during #JAEEC2002 September 2020
Through the entrepreneurship programmes we offer at JA Europe, we help students to be creative, believe in themselves and set high goals. We teach them that no obstacle can stop their progress if they work hard towards the goals they set their minds on.
Meet JA Greece alumna Maria Kokala, who won the Leadership Award at the JA Europe Company Programme Competition back in 2016, when she was only 15 years old. Since then, she has been a role model for all students in Greece. Her story is very inspiring as she grew up in a small village in Northern Greece (Pieria) and didn't know her amazing capabilities before participating in JA Greece's entrepreneurship programme. She now studies at the Athens University of Economics and Business.
