Persa began her architectural journey when she studied architectural and free hand drawing, for three years, at the Architectural Tuition Centre of Thanasis Papiotis in Thessaloniki, Greece. She then went on to pursue her Part 1 at London Metropolitan University, where she graduated in 2015.
After that Persa volunteered for several architectural organisations, including RIBA and Open House, where she discovered her fascination with sustainability and environmentally aware design. This lead her to work for an environmental consultancy where she learned the importance of safe materials in construction, however her passion always revolved around the idea of materials relating to the awakening of senses and human psychology.
As part of her academic studies she has had a lot of experience in designing elderly care housing projects. She has now shifted her focus to designing for education and is working alongside Hopkins Architects.
