Teşekkürler: “Thank You”
WHO IS YOUR ROLE MODEL?
I have a few inspirations. They are my school teacher who taught me to read and write so I can continue to learn on my own.
Then, my mom, who I really want to work with together with her at her school in the future.
And then my cousin Lara, who inspiringly really loves animals.
YUM LOCAL FOODS
I love meatballs, börek (a delicious filo pastry), açma (a Turkish savory pastry), and simit (mouthwatering Turkish savory pastry that has sesame seeds available at street vendors).
NEXT TRAvel DESTINATION
I look forward to visit Beirut. My mom just went there, and I love the beautiful scenery from my mom’s photos.
