My name is Kiki Tsakaldimi, I am 37 years old and I come from the coastal city of Alexandroupolis in northern Greece. I currently work in the City Library. I have no background in climbing or high mountains, yet I nurture a big dream. I want to climb Mt. Everest in spring 2017 and become the first Greek woman ever to climb the world’s highest peak. I dream to achieve the seemingly impossible, especially for someone with my background.
Lifestyle & Goals
I have been into rigorous sports all my life; I regularly hike, run long distance, open sea swimming, diving, and play tennis at a high level. I follow an extremely healthy lifestyle combining mindful living, wholesome nutritious food, and physical exercises and nurturing my inner and external self through meditation, yoga and social work. I recently curated and hosted the first ever TEDx Alexandroupolis in Feb 2016, leading a diverse team of 44, which was an immense success and inspired the entire city into action.
