Introducing Our Operations Intern: Katerina

Hello Stone Soup community! I’m Katerina and I joined the team two weeks ago. Many of you may have already bumped into me at Stone Soup these past few days, but let me properly introduce myself.

I’m 23 years old and I live in Athens, in a lively neighborhood, not far from Stone Soup. Soon after graduating with a Philology degree from University of Athens, I started my MA in Cultural Organisations Management, which I’m pursuing at the moment. My love for art and cultural activities led me to work for museums, events and cultural organizations.

Why Stone Soup?

Lately, I discovered that social entrepreneurship is something that I would like to get involved in and Stone Soup seemed like the right place for me. I discovered the coworking space through “Life Skills”, a youth career and development program, tailored to businesses with a social footprint. I instantly clicked with Stone Soup, since it is a dynamic multicultural co-working space. Stone Soup is based on sharing and  has built a strong community from all around the world.

Life Skills

I may be a true Athenian girl, but an international environment always fascinates me and this coworking space has already given me the opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds and feel part of this non-stop growing community!

My role at Stone Soup

For the next two months I will be Stone Soup’s communication and operations assistant, creating content for social media, making sure life at Stone Soup runs smoothly, engaging with the existing community and onboarding new members.

Alongside the coworking everyday life, I’m looking forward to co-organising events for the community. Since I’m a foodie I would love to share some of my recipes and make fellow Stone Soupers happy! I have no doubt that this internship will give me the opportunity to learn how a social enterprise works, especially in the communication sector.

I hope you will all be here to try my recipes during our gatherings!
