Betti Ürmös

For me that was the most difficult thing, how not to be ambivalent about who I am because I feel the strength, the beautiful gifts of my family, the history, the tradition. But all of a sudden that becomes something I should forget about and really feel shameful about it....but that’s who I am. The whole thing is who I am. I am a Hungarian, I am a gypsy, I live in the UK, but that’s all me and not one part could be missed, then it wouldn’t be me.

I am one of Betti's colleagues. I have only one thing to say – she's right.

I really love that you have gypsy heritage Betti. It is mystical, magical and special. You have an amazing intuition that draws one in, particularly useful for work with children. There is nothing to be ashamed of honey, quite the contrary x
