Geneva, Switzerland - Christina Kitsos, a politician with a deep commitment to public service, is poised to become the city's first mayor of Greek descent.

Kitsos, whose political journey began at the young age of 13 in the Youth Parliament, will assume office in June. This follows a tradition where the mayor's role rotates annually among the five members of Geneva's executive council.

Her dedication to social issues aligns with her upcoming priorities, which include tackling homelessness and supporting young people. Kitsos has already shown leadership in addressing gender pay gaps, advocating for increased wages in daycare centers.

Kitsos's Greek heritage plays a significant role in her worldview. She emphasizes the importance of cultural identity, stating in a recent interview, "There are many things...which will have a meaning in everyone's journey."

The Greek community, both in Geneva and abroad, celebrates Kitsos's achievement. Her background offers a unique perspective that promises fresh ideas for local governance. Kitsos herself believes Greece's values can serve as an inspiration, stating, "Through the values that Greece has always carried, we too can be inspired."
