Efthymia Stathopoulou was born and raised in Athens, Greece and has for a long time been involved in minority support groups, volunteer societies, and community centers. As a student at the Athens Law School, she has been involved in the legal assistance of asylum seekers and refugees in Athens – both in legal clinics and at NGOs. Her main front of engagement is the empowerment of this particular group of people through the provision of free legal aid and non-legal support such as accommodation and education. Efi is currently working as a coordinator of a new legal support project and is also a volunteer in an expanded network of volunteers throughout Athens. Efi is a Humanity in Action Fellow (Detroit Fellowship 2017).
