Tasia Nikiforos was born in 1944 in a village called Pantansa which  was very dry. She was one of eight kids living in a two storey house. She went to school when she was about six years old. She didnít have much variety of clothing to wear and worked to help out the family. She also grew her own vegetables.

 Young Tasia went to school when she was about six years old.  It would start at 8:00 every morning and she would come home each day at 12:00 to have  lunch.

Tasia moved to Australia in 1964 when she was eighteen years old.  Then after a year her brother came over by plane. Tasia settled in fine and she liked Australia a lot.
