Few words for Aikaterini Stamoulou:

In 2008, she started delivering Semantics courses to teachers and students. It was the beginning to discover how much she likes to teach the Sign Language. Today, she also undertakes to train the top level of interpreters.

At the same time, she directs and teaches at a private Seminary School as well as undertakes to sensitize potential doctors in collaboration with the non-governmental, non-profit organization of doctors, Helmsic. Finally, she graduated from the Department of Engineer in Infrastructure from the Technological Education Institute of Patras.
