Lachlan Ilias and Katrina Ikonomou have been named among Sydney inner west’s 30 most influential people 30 and under for 2022.
Who are they? The Greek Herald finds out.
Lachlan Ilias, 21, is a star halfback at the South Sydney Rabbitohs after the departure of halfback Adam Reynolds.
Raised in Five Dock, educated at Trinity Grammar in Summer Hill, and a product of both the Wests Tigers and South Sydney academies, Ilias has the inner west in his blood.
Souths fans across the inner west will be eagerly anticipating seeing what Mr Ilias can do this NRL season.
Katrina Ikonomou, 24, is the current Inner West Young Citizen of the Year. She was awarded for her work as a social worker at Gunnawirra Mums to provide services to local young women and children.
The Inner West Council and many others have seen Ms Ikonomou‘s efforts to engage and connect clients to elders and cultural programs, as well as strengthen cultural identities and knowledge, and provide a platform for intergenerational learning and healing.
