I know all the cast, crew and people involved with it and I love them and the show!" Demitra said.
"At its core, I feel really grateful for the show and particularly Ana Sevo the shows heartbeat, creator and producer extraordinaire! Meraki Tv has given me a unique way to connect with a large part of my heritage and culture, my Greek Australian community and has been especially wonderful in helping me find other Greek Australians with similar interests and experiences as me. I don’t want to deny any part of me, and this side of myself and my family is a big part of me. The show really has lived up to its name, it has given me ‘Meraki’. It’s really special to me," she continued.
Made by Greeks for Greeks living in Australia, one of the show’s main goals is to enable second, third and fourth generation Greeks to connect, share their unique experience, learn about the positive aspects of their culture and feel pride in their heritage and the connection that they feel towards it.
