Christine Vel comes from Mont Buxton, Mahé. Putting Seychellois nationals in tourism promotional offices has been the guiding principle of Sherin Francis, the CEO of the Tourism Board, and recent changes have opened the opportunity for Christine Vel to broaden her horizons as she represents her country in 'Jolly Old Angleterre'.

"I am personally proud of her success and take this opportunity to wish her well" states Francis.
