Hello! I am Ege and I am from Istanbul, Turkey. I am a junior, studying Media and Visual Arts and Psychology as a double major. I grew up and raised in Istanbul all my life. I also had an exchange year back in high school in 2016 and I spent a year in Juneau, Alaska. This was a life changing experience for me. I am an active volunteer in my community and I have volunteered for several projects in Turkey to promote equal education for everyone and to lower the disadvantages of minorities. I also had a chance to volunteer in Marrakech, Morocco for AIESEC in 2019 and work with several NGOs. I am a photographer and musical actor since high school and last year I was the Vice President of the musical club in my university. I also like nature and being in mountains. I made a decision to live in a tent during the COVID quarantine and I spent 6 months living in a tent in southern Turkey. I also like sport climbing and slacklining as well and of course doing yoga.
I have a versatile character and in the future I aim to intersect both of my disciplines and also keep volunteering.
I have received a full ride scholarship for my exchange year in USA from the Department of the States (KL-YES scholarship) and during my studies in USA, I have received Community Service Award by Ayusa International. I have replaced as the 77th in the National College Entrance Exam out of nearly 2 millions student and had a full-tuition scholarship from the university. I have received the Outstanding Success Scholarship which is only given to around 50 students out of thousands of applicants to potential future leaders by the Turkish Educational Foundation. As a goal achiever, I am eager to achieve more.
