Growing up in the heart of Holzminden:
Melike is a veteran of Holzminden. Instead of going to kindergarten, she spent most of her time in her parents’ tailoring shop right in the city center. Her parents’ house was in Karlstrasse, so it’s no wonder that she still lives in the heart of the city today: "I love living here in the city center, it’s just my home," says the 32-year-old.
Versatile career – exciting profession:
In her school days it quickly became clear: Talking and writing are Melike’s thing. Her strengths were clearly in the languages and she was very curious about it, so it is not surprising that she works as a freelance journalist and radio host today. However, it did not take this route directly. After graduating from high school at Campe-Gymnasium years In 2005, the 32-year-old initially completed an apprenticeship as an industrial clerk at Symrise.
"The training there was great, but actually I always wanted to be on the radio," said the young woman. After various internships, including at the Göttingen city radio and the daily newspaper Holzminden, she was surprisingly drawn to Bavaria. “At that time I applied for training as a radio host all over Germany and it became Ansbach in beautiful Middle Franconia,” she explains. For six years Ansbach became her adopted home: "I learned a lot, also about myself, I got to know great people with whom I still have contact today." Of course, she still goes to Ansbach from time to time, to visit friends and work colleagues.

The 32-year-old also finds peace and relaxation in reading. There is no prominent genre, everything from historical to modern is included. Since reading can make you hungry at some point, cooking as a hobby is almost a logical connection. "Something between Italian and Turkish", Melike locates her cooking style. And it tastes great!
