A few words about myself
I studied International Relations in Dokuz Eylül University (Izmir, Turkey) and continue my MA on European Union Politics in Marmara University (Istanbul, Turkey) and has been working in Pendik Municipality as International Relations Coordinator & Project Specialist for four and a half years. During this time, I have been a contact person for international organisations such as Eurocities, UCLG-MEWA, and NALAS.

I have participated in several Erasmus+ training programmes dealing with European Voluntary Services, Youth Exchanges and Strategic Partnership and been a coordinator of projects on these fields. Besides Erasmus+ programme, I have also written projects on IPA town-twinning programme and Black Sea CBC.

Currently, I am working at the municipality as project specialist dealing with international funded projects.
