Born in Göttingen, Germany, I moved with my parents to Istanbul, Turkey at 1995, where I lived for nearly eight years and attended the German School Istanbul.
After this I moved back to Germany for studying biology engineering first but soon realized that a socio-pedagogical education would suite my needs more.
I began to study educational sciences with the focus on migration at the University of Bielefeld in 2004.
During this time I worked in voluntary capacity for several associations and institutions mostly in the field of planning the professional paths of children of secondary school.
Since 2009 I am giving private turkish lessons.
In my spare time I am trying to keep up with my interest in drawing as good as it gets.
