Christina is a journalist who was born in Birmingham to Cypriot parents. Her mother Kika came to England as a refugee in 1974 with her parents and eight siblings. Father Savva moved to the UK in the 60s when he was just a year old. She later gained employment at the Birmingham Mail and worked in various roles including investigative reporter and social media before being promoted to Senior Editor Customer for the West Midlands and Cheshire region. Although she has always been interested in her family history she regrets not asking her grandparents more questions before they died at young ages. The opportunity to work on Queens of the Commonwealth and also Amathus, was one that could not be missed.
