She was also given the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Society of Editors.

The Society of Editors has almost 400 members, including editors, managing editors, editorial directors, training editors, editors-in-chief and deputy editors in newspapers, magazines, radio, television and digital media. It was established when the Guild of Editors and the Association of British Editors merged in April 1999.

Over her career, Christina has covered wars and conflicts across the world, winning fifteen major awards including Feature Writer of the Year for 2019 and five times Foreign Correspondent of the Year. She was appointed OBE in 2013.

She has written nine books including the global best-seller I Am Malala with Malala Yousafzai. Her tenth book was published in 2022, her first about the UK, The Prince Rupert Hotel for the Homeless (William Collins). The book explores how a four-star hotel in Shrewsbury opened its doors to homeless people during the Covid-19 pandemic.
