Our Expat in the City today: Betina
Who are you and where are you from? Since when are you in Munich? What do you do?
My name is Betina Mazzarino and I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I live in Munich since 2011 and I am a Values Facilitator Specialist. I work with people and organizations to help them define and connect systemically to their values and context not only, to become values-driven entities, but also to grow in a regenerative and sustainable way.
In what way did Expat in the City connect and inspire you?
Expat in the City is a very dear initiative to me. I was there when the project was about to be born, and I always believed in the passion and joy of her founder and alma mater, Elisabeth Egger. It is inspiring to experience the care and support Expat In the City has to offer to the newcomers and temporary residents of Munich.
What would your advice be to expats in Munich?
Be patient. The city and its people take its time to open up and show its beauty.
The calm, peace, predictability and, the beer and pretzel. That's what defines Munich for me.
What does best define Munich for you?
The calm, peace, predictability and, the beer and pretzel.
What are the places or things you love in Munich:
I love the Botanische Garten in springtime and walk through the Schlosspark Nyphemburg on any normal workday. Also, I love walking along the Isar and, the city and its markets in Christmas. It is absolutely beautiful.
Thank you for your time, Betina!
