Greeks rebuild lives after debt crisis wrecked dreams

AFP

In 2010, Panagiota Kalliakmani had just secured her chemistry degree and dreamed of going into research. Then the Greek economic crisis struck, reports AFP from Athens. With the cash-strapped state forced into massive spending cuts, the plug was pulled on myriad research programmes and a police forensics job Panagiota planned to apply for in her home city of Thessaloniki was scrapped.

“The crisis was a slap in the face,” says the 34-year-old, who is now a chef. Working in the kitchen reminds her of being in a lab, she muses. “We had grown up accustomed to the benefits of living in a European country and suddenly everything came crashing down,” Panagiota said.

As the fiscal crunch ate away a quarter of Greece’s economy, some 300,000 Greeks—among them the best educated and including Panagiota’s brother—emigrated.
