The family of 20-year-old has paid tribute to their girl who brought joy and laughter to their lives.

On Thursday April 18 at the age of just 20, Kristianna Hill from Enfield passed away.

Kristianna was born as a twin, Kathryn, and raised in the borough to an Anglo-Cypriot family.

Diagnosed with epilepsy at age 5, Kristianna persevered to maintain a healthy and independent life as much as possible.

She eventually went to Young Epilepsy’s St. Piers School in Lingfield after a long struggle by her family.

When it was determined that the state school system could not adequately support her needs she then went on to attend STARS in Turnpike Lane, and then West Lea School 6th Form College in Enfield.

Her family said: “As a person, she was a beautiful, youthful and a funny young woman who tried to live life to the full, despite the limitations her condition placed on her.

She touched the hearts of those around her."

An avid music fan she was very much into music and would often discuss with her friends and family which songs/bands were the best at the time and eagerly awaited the release of new music to update her playlists.

She had also attended several of her favourite band’s concerts over the years which furthered her love of music.

Kristianna’s ambitions which changed all the time was to become either a florist, artist, painter, chef or a teacher and her dream was to sing on the stage of X Factor – before she died she was preparing and practising for the auditions next year.

Kristianna’s funeral will take place on Wednesday May 1 at 12.30pm at the Greek Orthodox Church of St. John the Baptist, Wightman Road and the burial will take place at New Southgate Cemetery.

There will also be a gathering at Trent Park Golf Club to celebrate her life at 4pm.

Her family; siblings Kelly, James, Nathan, Amelia, Oliver; her twin Kathryn; her mother and stepfather Magdaline and Mathew; her father and stepmother Dan and Michelle; as well as her other family members and friends will all miss the joy and humour she brought to their lives.
