Christine Hatakka - President

Christine is from Oldenburg/Oldb and has lived in Berlin/Brandenburg since 2006. She has been a member of WiB for 9 years and was active as one of the group leaders of the former ‘First Steps in Berlin' group (presently called “Berlin - I explore my city”). Christine is married to a Finn, has three grown-up children and comes from a background in hotel management.

Her experience living abroad for 30 years, first alone and then with the family, not only has broadened her horizon and inspired her but also given new impulses to further enriching her life. Learning different customs and traditions of other countries is an event she does not want to miss. She is impressed by the openness and the mutual respect that are expressed among the WiB members of various nations.
