The First Cypriot University Graduate with Down Syndrome (VIDEO)
Eleni Louka became the first Cypriot university graduate with Down Syndrome after completing studies at the European University of Cyprus according to Greek media.
Graduating as a kindergarten teacher, Eleni Louka serves as an admirable role model for other young people with challenges, sending a message that everything is possible and dreams can become reality.
During her studies Louka was awarded by Madame Figaro magazine the “Life Excellency Award” ( Protion Zois) in memory of Andi Hatzikostis. A very important reward for her efforts and an opportunity to give a strong message to society.
After her award, various organisations and companies offered her employment opportunities, with her finally choosing to work at a summer school organised last summer by the Play4Kids playground in Nicosia.
