Shortly about Meike

I’m originally from Aachen in Germany and completed a volunteering year in London after my A-levels. I went back home for few months but ended up coming back to London. After working as a recruiter for just over a year, I started my Sociology and Psychology degree at the University of Greenwich. I was one of those keen bean engaged students and had various jobs with the University as well as various elected positions, such as being the President of the LGBTQ+ Society. I ended up running for the Greenwich Students’ Union Presidency in my final year and got elected as the first female, lesbian, German President. I got re-elected in March 2018 and my two-term Presidency finished at the end of June this year.

I had the time of my life at Greenwich; made the most of every minute and enjoyed every single day. I’ve always been an opportunist and joined the LBTQWomen.org network during my third year, through which the RAHM team found me. I had an incredible time in Berlin and will always be immensely grateful for the opportunity. I just started my role as Client Account Manager for Stonewall UK and am incredibly excited for what the future holds. I live by a quote from Che Guevara: ‘Let’s be realistic; demand the impossible’ as I truly believe that life is way too short not to make the most of it.
