About me

Hi! I’m Irina from Cyprus. I’m in 9th grade and love being in nature, but also lazing around watching Netflix :) I’m quite a bookworm and have strong beliefs on many things, which I love debating about.


Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

My brother has autism (as far as we know) and it’s a constant struggle trying to make sure he gets the education he deserves. He is moving to a new school which doesn’t exactly cater for children with special needs. As much as he annoys me (gotta stay real :) ) he is my brother and I will do as much as I can to keep him happy. 

I believe HundrED is a great place to voice opinions, and I want to shed light on something that isn’t spoken much about. 

How can education support students to flourish?

Children and youth spend a large portion of their time at school, so it should be a place for them to feel safe and not dread going to every morning. I think more focus should be placed on teaching students to live in the real world, and helping them to find success as they grow older. We’re constantly told by teachers and adults that it’s not only your grades that determine your future, but the system seems to suggest so. 

What role does innovation play in education change?
