2021 news review

"If you'd said to me last year that that we would be talking again with me in quarantine and you recovering from COVID, I would have said: 'You're a doomsayer.' And now I've literally been put in my place realising that we're still very much in the thick of things," Eleni says.

"But despite everything that's happened this year, I still feel that there are so many people working to ensure we get through COVID-19 that it gives me hope."
