Kyriaki Korina Driva was born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece. In 2016 she graduated from the School of Biology of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and since 2012 she has been studying music, Classical singing and Opera, at the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki. She has also spent a semester in Berlin, in order to conduct a placement at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics. That was the first time she experienced such a multicultural environment and had the opportunity to understand how powerful it is to communicate with people from all over the world. She volunteers in “Metadrasi”, a Greek NGO which helps to facilitate integration for refugees and immigrants, and mainly for unaccompanied children. Through this experience, she has been even more sensitized on helping other people. In the future, she aspires to do a PhD in Biomedicine while at the same time staying active in music.
