Enjoy every moment and make your own experiences – that is what is important in life for Melanie Eilert. Alongside her political interest, she is very passionate about musicals. How this fact would influence making a movie about her life, which musical actress could represent her the best way and what her answer to all questions is, she tells us at REHACARE.com.
Which person has influenced you most?
Melanie Eiler: I don’t have only one person who has influenced me. There are so many people in my life. My family is the most important part. Then my group leader and some classmates. But not to forget: my best friend. All of them helped me in their special way to live my life the way I want to.
You have the chance to become the German Federal Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?
Melanie Eiler: Like some other people who took part in this interview, I would like to support the German Federal Participation Law (Bundesteilhabegesetz).
I have an assistant and so I create jobs. And I also work. I pay taxes and social security contribution. It’s simply not right that I have to pay a "penalty" from my earnings for the assistant.
And I would also like to fight for accessibility. The times where I can’t go to musicals because of the stairs should be over.
