Ioanna Merope Ioppitis

Life’s too short NOT to be Italian

Ioanna Merope Ippiotis was born on the Greek island of Lesvos and she moved to the UK when she was 12. Led by a great passion for languages, she completed a degree in Modern Languages (Italian and Spanish) and a Master of Arts in Applied Translation Studies at the University of Manchester and the University of Leeds respectively. After spending her Erasmus year in Perugia and Madrid she joined the Erasmus Committee for the British Council to promote the European studies and working abroad. In 2010 she moved to Milan where she worked as a freelance translator and in-house assistant project manager, and later to Turin to work as a social media copywriter. Currently she works as a translator and editor for La Stampa’s Vatican Insider website.
