Soula Kosti

Soula Kosti is an international college student from Greece. She has been in the United States for four years and as a senior in college she explores her options of where to go next. She wants to travel to as many places as she can and then get a job in a bookshop, a museum, a publication company, a library, and maybe one day teach people her language and culture. She enjoys food (and especially desserts), as much as she enjoys reading a good book. The best gift would be either a plane ticket or ten dogs. She loves her family and friends, and tries to enjoy the little things in life.
