Meet JA Greece alumna Maria Kokala, who won the Leadership Award at the JA Europe Company Programme Competition back in 2016, when she was only 15 years old. Since then, she has been a role model for all students in Greece. Her story is very inspiring as she grew up in a small village in Northern Greece (Pieria) and didn't know her amazing capabilities before participating in JA Greece's entrepreneurship programme. She now studies at the Athens University of Economics and Business.
