Coming to the USA has been my biggest dream and I cannot believe that it has come true. I have wanted to come here since 2007. Now I'm here. It has been the most important experience and has shown me that if you believe in yourself and work hard, you can reach your goals and dreams. I wanted to organize an event to share this message and help to a non-profit organization.
And I decided to skydive before I go back to Turkey.you can support me by donating $10 or whatever you can. I will pass the donations on to a non-profit organization in my home country, Turkey.
EVENT NAME: Let Yourself Free
GOALS: Sharing this message "If you believe in yourself and work hard, you you will reach your dreams" and fundraising for a non-profit organization.
WHY SKYDIVING: I believe that skydiving is the most dangerous state of happiness where courage and liberty come together.

Amerika'ya gelmek gerceklesecegine inanamadigim en buyuk hayalimdi. Buraya gelmeyi yaklasik 5 yildir istiyordum. Simdi burdayim. Bu en onemli tecrube bana gosteriyor ki eger kendine inanirsan ve cok calisirsan hayallerine ulasabilirsin. Ben de bu tecrubeyi bir fon bulma kampanyasina cevirerek hem herkese sesimi duyurmak hem de kar amaci gutmeyen bir organizasyona yardim etmek istedim.
Ve Turkiye'ye donmeden once skydiving yaparak bu fikrimi hayata gecirmeye karar verdim. Eger sen de bu kampanyanin bir parcasi olmak istiyorsan 10 dolar ya da ne kadar yapabilirsen bagislayarak dahil olabilirsin.

AMACI: Kendine inanarak cok calisirsan hayallerine ulasabilirsin mesajini vermek ve bunu yaparken kar amaci gutmeyen bir organizasyon icin fon bulmak

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.
