Zişan is a University Innovation Fellow Candidate and a junior Chemical Engineering student aiming to improve herself on environmental sustainability. She was born in Çorum which is a small northern Anatolian city in Turkey. She's lived there until the end of her high school education and has moved to Istanbul for her university education when she was 18.
She got involved in various projects related to different social and environmental issues. Those projects raised her awareness about what’s going on in the world and how she, as a chemical engineer, can play a role in solving those issues. At the top of all global issues, she believes that we should start with the environment-related ones. Because, they are the cause of most social issues including global poverty, migration and inequalities. She has been doing research about biodegradation and eco-friendly materials and she wants to direct her academic background to clean energy and sustainable production systems. Also, she has been working as a climate change and sustainability consulting intern for a time.
With her experiences she gained through her journey, she wants to make a change for a better and equal world. That's why she is here.
