Carmen Iohannis, the wife of President Klaus Iohannis on Thursday said she would like to involve herself in education and young talents’ support.
“I haven’t quite started activity for now, but I promise I’ll try to do something for the ones at home and for the ones from abroad, as much as I could. I’d love to get involved in education and young talents’ support, why not?” said Carmen Iohannis, who stayed next to her husband at the meeting he had with the representatives of the Romanian community in Germany organised at the Romanian Embassy in Berlin.
Carmen Iohannis said she wished to continue to be a teacher, “at least a part-time one.” The head of state’s wife added that it is hard to commute from Sibiu (271 km northwest of Romania’s capital city) to Bucharest, yet for now she has no place to move in.
“When we’ll have a place of our own, we’ll think about that, yet so far we have no place to live (…) We should wait a bit longer,” said Carmen Iohannis, as she was asked if she intended to move to Bucharest in the future.
On the other hand, she said she didn’t accompany her husband in his official visit to the Republic of Moldova because she had classes, but also because “it was not the case” to be there.
The president’s wife explained she was trying to get used to the role of “First Lady”, “an interesting, yet hard to deal with” role, and added that “meeting people gives her positive, very pleasant emotions.”
Carmen Iohannis labeled the visit to Germany as “superb”: “Berlin is a very beautiful city. The fact that so many Romanians live in Germany is of utmost importance to us. We wish them a good life here and perhaps, sometime we wish them to return home.”
She added she couldn’t make it to meet her in-laws in Berlin, while on the official visit there.
