Congratulations to Claire Gazis on being RECOGNISED IN THE KING’S BIRTHDAY 2023 HONOURS LIST. And supporting our Cypriot initiative

Claire Gazis has been recognised for her service to the Greek and Cypriot communities of Victoria. Mrs Gazis hasa passion for telling the stories of the Greek and Cypriot people who came to Australia particularly during the 1950s and 1960s. She worked for more than 30 years at Neos Kosmos, where she still contributes.

“I wanted to build knowledge and understanding in the Australian community of our shared culture and help cultivate strong ties not just with each other but to Australia,” Mrs Gazis says.

“I feel a purpose to share what I know so that everyone benefits. No request is too big or too small, I see the value in connecting with my community, learning, and growing together for collective joy and fulfilment.”

Mrs Gazis added that she feels proud to be recognised.

“I enjoy and feel proud to be a member of our multicultural community and it is moving to be appreciated for what I have spent so much of my life in Australia doing. Above all, I feel that any recognition strengthens my drive and sense of responsibility to do more for the community,” she says. 

We are forever grateful to Claire as she supported our book Cypriot Whos Who and wrote about it several times in the Neos Kosmos Newspaper.
