Presvytera Vassi Makris Haros is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Art, Architecture & Planning and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. She is the owner, designer and photographer of V’s Cardbox, In Service and Love. a greeting card company featuring cards with an Orthodox voice.

Have you ever wondered why people become monks and nuns? In her graduation film from Coventry University, Brindusa Ioana Nastasa (Grapefruit Productions) captures 10 intimate interviews with various monastics throughout Romania.
Filmed in Romanian, and with English subtitles, Behind the Monastery Walls presents an honest and respectful insight to an extremely private world. Why do people become monastics? As one of the monks shares, “Life is too beautiful to do cheap and futile things.” Watch the video and be inspired to love more, even if you aren’t in a monastery.
