After growing up in the sunny region of Limassol in Cyprus, in 2009 Anna decided to leave a sunny lifestyle behind her and begin her studies in French Translation with Russian at the University of Surrey in Guildford.

She soon started getting used to the British way of life and found herself constantly talking about the ever-changing weather! In 2011, she took part in the Erasmus programme and lived in Paris for a year, where she studied for three months and worked at the Cypriot Embassy for the rest of her time there.

After graduating and while applying for her Master’s Degree, once again in Translation, she started working as a freelance translator, where she finally put her long-term love of languages to good use. After completing her MA with a dissertation about the adaptation of comic books, she moved to London and joined Mother Tongue shortly afterwards.
