Alkmini Giampanidou writes about her collaboration with Saita Publications

A few years ago, the “saita” (paper plane) we played with when we were children, came to my mind, the one we used to make, using our creativity and imagination, and then we would travel on it towards the dream. This “saita” is still here, and I am very happy and grateful, to have rediscovered it again. It has expanded since then…and now it nurtures the dreams of all those who want to express their emotions and ideas. It is real, it is honest, and it speaks to you with respect and love, because like you, it aims for the same thing…people’s hearts. This “saita”, which was made from people’s enthusiasm and hard work, is so big and it travels all around the world. I am thankful it “knocked” on my heart, and has led me down a more real and beautiful path.
