My first lesson in Skillshare!

Lately I am thrilled with Skillshare, do you know this learning platform? It's an online community with more than 2500 courses regarding creative skills and not only. The courses cover a wide range of of topics; design, photography, food, marketing and the list is very long. I followed a remarkable number of courses the last 2 months: I learned from the super stars of each field to chop my vegetables like a pro, to make the perfect cup of coffee, to photograph food, the basic principles of marketing, impressive calligraphy and much more. As you can see my progress as a student is brilliant, I enjoy Skillshare incredably and that all said I decided to make my own lesson in the platform.

In my first lesson I am sharing the tips & tricks I learned from my effords to germinate avocado seeds. During my first attempts it was taking me 3-4 months and at the end I could do it in one damn month. So I decided to share all these (simple and beautiful) things with you. The course is absolutely for free, all you need to do is to subscribe in the Skillshare platform. Sign up right now!

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
