When & Where
I'm from Turkey. I'm 24 years old. I graduated from Faculty of Communication 2 years ago. Since graduation, I had been working for a company in Turkey in Izmir. I took a permission from my company for 6 months to come to USA 4 months ago.
I'm going to Language School in Los Angeles. I just got the best student certificate from my language school.
I'm very friendly. I'm also really into extreme sports like skydiving and paragliding. I love adrenaline and having fun.
I have also been volunteering for a non-profit organization since 2010.
Degisim Liderleri Dernegi (Change Leaders Association)
University educated young women in Turkey, by virtue of their proven educational accomplishments, motivation and general sophistication can be considered "high impact", namely they are in a favorable situation to make lasting economic and social contributions to Turkish society. Despite their potential, however, many do not continue into the labor force or in leadership positions in their communities once they are married. Many of these young women are the first in their families and communities to go to college adn therefore do not have the support networks and skills necessary to continue in such roles.
