Q: Describe yourself in three words?

Enthusiastic, hyperactive and caring

Q: What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?

As being an acrophobic person, I truly believe, the bravest thing I have ever done, was facing my fear with zip lining. In order to beat my fear of heights, I have decided to step off the platform which was 250 meters above from the ground and just flying through the air. After getting over my fears, I had a feeling of expanding my boundaries.

by increasing the awareness about my country I am becoming a useful person

Q: What’s your alternative career fantasy?

I truly believe being a doctor or pilot is a dilemma of choosing my alternative career fantasy. If you a doctor, you always touching the lives of other people, and if you are a pilot, it does not matter how cliché it sounds but “the sky is your only limit”.

Q: What are you obsessed with at the moment?

When I was a teenager, I thought I figured out the life, I have the knowledge, but there are some parts left to learn. Then I started to work at different organizations, travel to new countries and communicate with a lot of people representing different cultures. That moment was the self-realization for me, so I confessed I knew almost nothing. So, I became extremely curious about people’s stories, experiences, knowledge, opinions etc. Not now, but hopefully during my whole life, I can say that my obsession is-having an insatiable desire with knowledge.

Q: Your goals before 50?

In the culture I grew up, families were always saying “All I want from you, is to be a useful person for your country” to their kids. When I was a child and someone asked me, “who do you want to be when you grow up”, I always thought what kind speciality I can choose in order to be useful for the humanity. During my school years, I thought most probably, being a teacher and a doctor become at the first one of this list. Apparently, I am not any of them. But it is my belief that, by increasing the awareness about my country by using different ways, sharing its kindness with another nation, being a voice of my culture towards anyone, not in just words, but also through with personal touches, I am becoming a useful person at least for my country and community. It is my life goal, saying myself “you did your best in order to contribute to your society” before 50.
