Employee spotlight is our blog series where we get up-close and personal (and have some fun) with our favorite team members at Commit Global.

Next one on our list is one of our newest additions to the team, our Project Manager Eleni Syntila.

I joined Commit Global almost three months ago.

3. What do you like most about your job?

The challenge of running multilingual projects as part of a team that exchanges ideas and learns from each other.

I’d love to be a storyteller. In fact, it’s something I am trying to study as much as I can.

I play tennis, I go hiking in the nature and I read books when I’m not with friends.

I’d love to travel to Latin America!

9. What was the last book you read?

I am reading several books at the same time. Plato’s Lysis, “Aristotle again” by Th. Tassios and The Lost Island by Karagatsis.

10. What is the one thing, you can’t live without?

Cheese.

11. What tv show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love?

“Friends”, most people, including myself, find it silly. But I still love it.

Pizza.

14. Wine or beer?

Both.

I’m a huge fan of Sokrates, so I would say “It’s better to suffer an injustice than to commit one”.
