Name: Bettina Will-Sterr
Lives in: I live in Paros, Cycladic Islands, Greece
From: I was born in Leverkusen, Germany. I grew up there for the first 11 years, then we moved to Munich, Bavaria, Germany for 6 years, and then back to Leverkusen. I started to study at the University of Cologne and after half, I changed to Freiburg/Breisgau, Germany. My studies were in History, French, and political sciences.
Occupation: I am a dance teacher for International Ballroom and International Latin as well as Salsa Cubana. Also, I am an instructor for Pilates gymnastics and fascia fitness. Last but not least, I have 4 Zumba licenses.
Tell us your first three jobs (ever!): My first three jobs were all while I was studying at university. First, I had a holiday job in a Data Center for a big company while studying. Then I worked in service in a restaurant. Any finally, I sold footballs by telephone. Then I became a dance teacher, which is what I still am today. 🙂
Zodiac sign: Scorpio
What do you love about Greece? I love the atmosphere, the friendliness, and the hospitality of the people. From my experience, people in general are open-minded. Also, I think, that the good weather influences the character as well, easier than in Germany, people smile at you and you get easier contact with them.
In one word I would say, that in Greece, people work to live and in Germany, people live to work. This makes also a big difference in daily life. Of course, the weather is wonderful, even when it is windy and stormy in winter-times, but the more important things are the personal ones.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you: I am a bit shy.

Tell us your top tip to combat climate change: Everybody should start with small things in his private environment, then things can spread out.
