Despina_PapadopoulouDespina Papadopoulou is the Vice-President of AIPFE Cyprus. A graduate of Imperial College of  the University of London, with a B.Sc Degree in Biochemistry and an M.Sc Degree in Biotechnology, Despina has devoted 25 years to teaching, both in the private and government sectors.

She was a Biology teacher and for the last seven years of her career she served as a Deputy Headmistress. Despite a rather demanding post, she found that working with youth kept her young at heart and always on the go!

Being a mother of two boys and the wife of a husband with a challenging career, Despina always has her hands full but still manages to find time for the various organisations she belongs to, pursuing all that she does with great passion.
AIPFE Cyprus is of great essence to her as it is a tool which promotes women’s values, rights and achievements in today’s society. She has been a Board member of AIPFE for the last nine years, having held the post of Vice President for six years.

Despina is looking forward to being an active member of the newly-elected AIPFE Board for the next term and truly believes that AIPFE will continue its ascending path.
