Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki is an Olympic organizer, ambassador of the Greek state, lawyer, and former parliamentarian. In 1986, Ambassador Angelopoulos-Daskalaki was elected to the Athens Municipal Council. In 1989, she was elected to parliament, and won reelection the following year.
Following her marriage to Theodore Angelopoulos, Gianna resigned her seat in the Parliament to focus on family and business. In 1996, the prime minister of Greece appointed her to lead the country's successful campaign to host the 2004 Olympic Games. In 2000, when slow progress and gridlocked bureaucracy put Athens in danger of losing the Games, she was asked to assume the presidency of the Athens 2004 Organizing Committee and save the project.
Today, Ambassador Angelopoulos-Daskalaki serves as vice-chairman of the Dean's Council of Harvard s Kennedy School of Government and is a supporter of the Clinton Global Initiative, a leading philanthropist for projects in Greece and around the globe, and a proud parent of three grown children.

I took it as a type of trolling. the book is a joke. and she is the joker.
All of the above, served with proper use of Engish.. I recall most of the words Gianna uses in her book, in my GRE verbal lessons.. so at least you will improve your English. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Athanasios Kiourtis
