As the Region 8 Student Ambassador, Katerina will play a pivotal role in representing our university and the greater Computer Society student community across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. This ambassadorship provides a unique platform for our student chapter to engage with professionals, students, and industry leaders, fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange on an international scale.
