Kristina P.

©Kristina P.

Kristina was born in Russia and has obtained a degree in Chinese Studies from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Apart from English and her native Russian, she speaks Mandarin Chinese, French, and German. Her main interests are philosophy, psychoanalysis, religion and ritual, history of art, and world cinema.

Kristina thinks that her yearning to study different cultures and languages is deeply linked to her continuous attempt to understand what makes us human.

She is also keen on exploring the link between nature and humans, and is passionate about environmental protection. Her favorite animals may well be the moon bears, which she encountered for the first time during an internship at a Panda Base in China.

Lida Filippakis

Lida was born in Greece, brought up bilingual (Greek and English), and has been working as a journalist for the past twelve years for Greek and foreign media.

She believes that the “gypsy” inside her is inherited from the mixture of places she comes from, notably Odessa, Chios Island and Northern Greece. She is a true sportaholic who also loves traveling, music, good food and the sea.

Lida graduated with an MA in Russian and Mass Media of the Eastern Block from Glasgow University.

Jade Le Van


Jade is an avid discoverer of new cultures, and an outdoors addict. She is interested in social issues and in harnessing the power of computers to make sense of big bulks of data.

During her studies at Sciences Po, she spent a year perfecting her Mandarin Chinese at Beijing University, and another six months studying business administration in Mexico. As a result, she reads and writes Chinese and Spanish, as well as English and French.

Jade has been working in Singapore for the past two years and is currently enjoying a six months sabbatical in Southeast Asia. On the road, she’s picked up some additional language skills in Bahasa Indonesia, and has found a perfect candidate for a sixth language in Python programming.
