About

I lived in Germany
I have Turkish roots
I lived in England
I am attending University in Sweden

As an Economic student at the Jönköping Business School, I am enthusiastic about using technology for social good and stretching our imagination to comprehend and make use of the discoveries in the universe. I have interests in programming and tech entrepreneurship and have research and work experience in both areas. I have won the Kumon Mathematics Award, the „Digital Wunderkind“-Award and I am also a Microsoft Scholar, Palantir Scholar. I am dedicated to building something innovative and have created an organization called ‚legal-design-association.org‘ that brings together designers, IT professionals and lawyers in order to make Law more usable and user-friendly. I’m focusing all my efforts on creating new products for this thing called „The Internet“. And one day I hope to make something that impresses my Mum.
