Demilia Kambourides Vernicos


I am 17 years old, the oldest of 3 siblings. I have two passports: Greek and Cypriot. I have been a student at Athens College since elementary school.

I have been raised by travel-passionate parents, and I have tagged along to 48 different countries.  On 30 April 2019, just a few days before turning 13, I became the youngest Greek woman to reach the Refugio P. Jose Ribas de Rein of Cotopaxi Volcano, at an altitude of 4,800 meters (15,700 feet).

From Ecuador to Mongolia, these adventures have given me the opportunity to gain knowledge that a traditional classroom could never offer and sparked my passion for understanding cultures and human behavior. The resilience and community spirit I saw got me thinking – what makes us tick? These experiences reinforced my desire to delve deeper into Psychology.

I co-founded Milamou, and I am volunteering with organizations supporting those facing psychological issues and poverty such as BreatheKyada and Arogi

I am also interested in business and leadership. I am a member of the Entrepreneurship Club of my school and I participated in two competitions where I was the PR manager and won a first prize in public opinion category. I co-founded a mobile app startup that connects people to run errands for pay. I was the President of my Class for several years.

I am inspired by my parents. My father Miltos, is a serial entrepreneur who creates unique resorts and experiences and who has three degrees from MIT. My mother Marina, an Emerson and Harvard Extension graduate, founded Creaid, a very active philanthropic non-profit organization. 

I am determined to study in the US. My intended major is Applied Psychology, which is feel aligns perfectly with my experiences and aspirations to explore how we can use psychology to make the world a better place.


I’m an IB2 student at Athens College with interests in Psychology and Entrepreneurship. My IB prediction score is 44/45.
