The sweetest Maria becomes the first Greek kindergarten teacher with Down syndrome

For children with Down syndrome, the future is never as open and full of choices as the rest. And yet, some of them overcome the limitations and expectations with the power of will and their unceasing struggle, but also with the support of relatives and those in charge. Like Maria Nitsa from Kastoria who is waiting in the next few days to be declared a graduate Kindergarten Teacher.

Maria Nitsa is counting down to the day she will graduate and will become the first Kindergarten Teacher in Greece with Down syndrome, delivering strength and willpower lessons throughout Greece.

Maria comes from Mesopotamia, Kastoria, has Down syndrome, but also diabetes. In 2017 he managed to be admitted to the Pedagogical Department of Kindergarten Teachers of Florina, after 12 whole years of hard study. Now, she has completed her studies and is preparing to receive her degree in a month.

It really is a unique moment for Maria, her family, but also the whole country. And, of course, it’s a moment of inspiration for all people living with the same syndrome.

With the power of the soul and her passion for knowledge, Mary teaches us all that the will to live can overcome the greatest difficulties.
