Favorite Athens Haunt & Getaway

Jittery Joes is definitely my number one favorite place to hang out. I love all the memories from college that come back when I enter the familiar doors. The beach is my favorite place to be!

A Quotable Quote About My Spia Experience

“Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.” ― Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed
