I have been recently chosen to be a Distant Host counsellor to Lydia, and my wife and I will meet her at the Bill Huntley Memorial Peace Fellows Seminar Dinner on 27 October 2017

I have also invited her to speak at the District Council Meeting at Glyndwr University on 8 March 2018 and she will also have a short stay with us.

Lydia Kröger

Rotary Peace Fellow 2017-18, class XVI

Academic background: Global Business Management

Area of interest: fundraising, communications, education, intercultural dialogue

Growing up in Eastern Germany, Lydia developed a strong interest in seeing the world and getting to know new cultures, things which her parents had not been able to do until their early 30s.

During her studies of Global Business Management she joined the largest international student-run organization AIESEC, holding several leadership roles and facilitating hundreds of intercultural exchanges between German university students and students from all over the world. After finishing her studies, she has worked for NGOs in Brazil, Southeastern Europe and Germany in the areas of education, inclusion of minorities and youth activism as well as volunteered in several refugee camps in Berlin.

Lydia is fluent in German, English, Spanish, Portuguese and has advanced knowledge of Arabic.
