Vasilios Armiros


Hi! My name is Vasilios Armiros (I usually go by William), I’m 19 years old and from the suburbs of Chicago. Currently, I’m finishing up my freshman year at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I study electrical engineering. I am heavily involved in Model United Nations and my fraternity on campus. I am interested in foreign affairs, technology, and movies – my favorite is either The Silence of the Lambs or The Shawshank Redemption. My dad moved to the States from Greece with his parents as a child, so I am only half Greek but his side of the family has instilled in me a love of Greek food and traditions (which unsurprisingly wasn’t that hard). I have only been to Greece once when I was very young and couldn’t commit much to memory, so I can’t wait meet everyone and be fully immersed in the country this June!

I am honored to have been selected to participate in Heritage Greece 2016 and I am very excited to experience this once and a lifetime opportunity.

John Calamos

The Greek Heritage Program is really Important to me because I don’t have a lot of knowledge of the Greek culture and what it means to be Greek. I have some knowledge but I want to know more about my heritage, and learning the language. Going to Greece would expand my mind and assist me in becoming more appreciative that I am Greek. I would be around people who are Greek just like me, make new Greek friend’s and having a wonderful bonding experience with them that would last a lifetime. Learning how to speak Greek would also be something new for me to experience. Being in the Greek community is a wonderful privilege to have, I am very blessed for being in this community and everyone embracing being Greek. This is a privilege because this would be one time experience being around kids my age learning the importance of our heritage. I have always loved embracing that I was Greek, being Greek is a cool thing to be because being Greek has a long history to it. Going on tours and seeing some of the old statues really brought a lot of knowledge to my eyes on what Greece really meant and how our community is getting stronger and stronger. I think it is very important for young adults to go and experience Greece and have a good understanding and appreciate the Greek culture. What I hope to learn in the Greek Heritage Program is to learn how to speak Greek, have some more knowledge about the heritage, and to make some new friends who are Greek. Going to this program would be wonderful opportunity and a privilege to go to.
