To those who think that Greece does not matter today, let me say that they could not make a bigger mistake. Today, like old Greece, is of the utmost importance for anyone looking to find himself.

Christina Kitsos: First Greek Mayor of Geneva

Christina Kitsos: First Greek Mayor of Geneva

For the first time in the history of Geneva, a new Greek Mayor assumed her duties.

She was born in Switzerland, but her parents are from Greece.

Her mother from Thessaloniki originally from Eastern Thrace and Constantinople, and her father from Edessa originally from Macedonia.

Christina was born in Neuchatel in a small town in the Alps where there were no Greeks, nor an Orthodox church.

He learned Greek at home by listening to Greek music and reading poetry and literature. She is even asked how a young woman of foreign origin managed to succeed in politics.

He entered politics at the age of 13 by taking part in the Youth Parliament, then at 22 he joined the Socialist party.

"Since the field in which I specialize is social welfare, I have to say that unlike Greece where relationships are based on the interpersonal axis, here there is a much stronger presence of civil society.

We in the municipality of Geneva cooperate on all issues with organizations that have long-term experience in a field and with this cooperation we also help people in need.

In general, civic education starts from childhood.

Children, like adults, have rights and we must help them realize this early on, as well as that they are part of a wider whole, therefore they also have obligations. In this country, children start with soft nails and I believe that helps a lot.

I love Greece and when I'm there I can talk easier and more spontaneously even with a stranger.

One finds that Greeks may tell their most serious problem to a taxi driver, whom they will never see again in their life.

In Switzerland the codes of sociability are different, the priority is to be discreet with one's fellow citizen.

There is the subtlety of not embarrassing someone by being involved with them.

It's a question of politeness and not a lack of solidarity"

Our dear friend Christina Kitsos is a dynamic, creative and courageous young woman, who is very close to the Greeks and Philhellenes of the Community.

She is present at various religious, national and social celebrations and events.

We applauded her at the celebration held in her honor in the old town of Geneva when she assumed the duties of the new Mayor.

The Consul General of Greece in Geneva Mr. Alexandros Gennimatas as well as many members of the Greek Parish took part in the important celebration, where Christina Kitsos mentioned in her speech how proud she is of Greek origin.
