Maria Louvari is currently working on her new project, PEOPLEFOLIO–a media project, which aims to convey messages, inspire and educate in a non-traditional way. Through interviews and personal stories of people from all around the globe, she aims to present cultures and civilizations, tackle human rights issues, promote global solidarity and social justice, fight discrimination, and inspire personal development, courage, and self-esteem. The project was launched on an online platform at www.peoplefoliomag.com in June, 2015. Within the context of this project, she will be launching outdoor social campaigns and creative activism collaborative initiatives, locally in Cyprus, as well as internationally, in the future. She was born and raised in Cyprus, studied Political Science and Public Administration in Athens and has worked as a journalist in print media since 2004. Prior to her current entrepreneurship endeavour, she held the position of Co-Editor/Editorial Consultant at LEGACY Intelligence & Development magazine and undertook freelance consulting as an editorial management consultant in B2B publications. Prior to that, she was the Managing Editor of IN Business International Edition. She has worked as a Senior Journalist at IN Business magazine (Greek edition) for half a decade, and begun her career with an internship in the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs, followed by a two year full-time position as a research officer at Terra Cypria NGO.
