I was first elected as your Labour MP for Enfield Southgate in June 2017 and re-elected in December 2019. Before this I was a solicitor and worked for Hackney Council on their housing litigation team for 16 years.
I am the first MP whose parents are both from Cyprus. I was born in London and raised in Bowes Park. I love Enfield and grew up here. Many of my friends and family live in the area.
As a child I went to St Michael at Bowes Junior school, where I am now school governor. I was a councillor for Palmers Green ward for 24 years – the place that has been my home for most of my life.
