Helena Paparizou in one sentence – Helena is a flammable woman and a very talented singer/performer.
It is an honor for me to be the ambassador of Greece for the Greek Ministry of Tourism. To tell you the truth, I’ve always been an unofficial ambassador to Greece, everywhere I go, I always boast about Greece.
I am very close with my mother, I love and adore her and I also admire her. She has stood by me through everything, and both my parents have supported me and continue to support me through my career.
