Who are you?
I was born on June 6, 1998, in Turkey. At a young age, I had to move a lot due to family problems. However, this situation made me a self-confident person who can adapt quickly to the environments I enter. When I was 14, I graduated from high school far from my family. This situation taught me to cope with responsibilities at an early age and what I can do when I am alone in life. During my first year of high school, I lived in a dormitory. Here I made friends from different cultures from various provinces and my circle expanded.
My acquaintance with Non-Governmental Organizations; happened because of an injustice I suffered during my high school years. I met the world of civil society when I asked for help from a non-governmental organization that carries out Rights-Based Youth Studies. When I was 17, I was deemed secular as Turkey’s youngest Founder of the Metropolitan Youth Assembly. During this task period, we developed projects for young people between the ages of 14-30 to take an active role in local decision-making mechanisms.
Some of these projects are;
- Supporting financial literacy,
- Supporting Entrepreneurial Young Women,
- To encourage the use of sports fields,
- They were projects to explore different regions of Turkey.
