In Her Own Words...
"Γειά σας !!Hello from the beautiful island of Cyprus!
My name is Kristy Marie Agapiou, I am 20 years old and I was born and raised in Limassol, Cyprus. I am half English and half Cypriot. With an English mother and Cypriot father I got to understand and experience the cultural diversity of the two countries.
I am currently in my 3rd year of studying Food and Human Nutrition at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom. Alongside my studies I also work as a model in Newcastle, London and Cyprus.
Furthermore, I am such a hardworking, passionate and determined person that always loves a challenge. I have such passion in what I do as I started modelling at the age of 12. I have always felt that being in front of a camera or being on a stage in front of so many people made me feel like I was where I belonged. As a child we all have dreams and I believe that challenges and dreams are what keep us going in life. Actions are what separate dreamers from believers.
All in all, I am honoured to be taking part in the 63rd Miss World beauty contest in Indonesia and meeting all the other contestants. It is a dream come true and I promise to enjoy this amazing journey that is about to begin. I will take in every second and every moment, of this unforgettable experience as it will be a once in lifetime opportunity."
