Mareike started as a volunteer in the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW), where she was part of a local emergency disaster response team. As photography is an important hobby for her, she soon became part of the THW media team in Northern Germany. In 2017, Mareike got the opportunity to be part of the EU MODEX exercises as a photographer in the media team. Since then, she has participated in many EU MODEX exercises, taken many photos and met many inspiring people from all over Europe. In the end, the EU MODEX family made her start a training to become part of an international disaster response team of THW.
