Markela is a student at the American College of Greece where she studies history and communication. She is especially interested in politics and international relations.

Markela has helped me a lot in understanding our class topic from a different perspective. The word terrorism is not taboo or tip-toed around in Greece and in Greek media. She says that terrorism is not at all a new concept in Greece, since for many years a group called 17 Noemvri was active, but its members were arrested in 2002. I am learning a lot from Markela and I look forward to having more discussions with her!
