“Our paths crossed with the British Council for the first time during the Next Generation Turkey research they performed in 2017. On behalf of Reçel Blog, I had the chance to take part in the advisory board of the research report with Batuhan Aydagül, Hansın Doğan and Nilay Erdem. Being in the same structure with these names and exchanging ideas around the youth theme was very instructive and inspiring process. Now, not long after our previous meeting, I’m taking part on the advisory board WOW-Women of the World Festival Istanbul on behalf of Havle Women's Association and Foundation for Life with Özlem Ece, İpek Bozkurt, Asena Günal and Ülker Uncu, where we exchange ideas and have a productive design process.
For me, all these processes allowed me to see and recognise my own competencies and potential, as well as to be part of the important discussions and sharing in the field. In addition, my visits to London within the scope of these two studies was also an important experience and memory in my life.”
