About Kristina:

Kristina is currently in her third year at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus. She is specializing in in Neuroscience with a minor in Music (cause her Yiayia loves to hear her play Clarino…). She is aspiring to get into Med School to become a pediatrician. Kristina runs her own Swim School in the summer, helping kids learn the lifelong skill of swimming. During the school year she works at her local community center teaching Aquafit to all the Yiayias and Papous and is notorious for playing “Metraw Antistrofa” during their workouts. While she has been a general member of the Greek Association for the past 2 years, she really wanted to get more involved to meet more Greeks on campus, and spread the Hellenic Culture. Her hobbies is dancing zeibetiko in the Kitchen after eating dinner, eating, cooking, and blasting Greek Music while ripping it on the highway to avoid being late for class. She hopes that one day she will find a “nice Greek boy” to make her Yiayias proud (just kidding ;-D). This year her goal is to get expand the Greek Student Association, and she hopes to get a crew together to tour Greece in 2019!!
