Recognitions

When I am not designing on my laptop or drawing all sorts of ideas to a whiteboard, I actively seek bringing creative thinkers together to foster a strong community anywhere I live. I like to give back the know-how and resources to people who are passionate about the impact and philosophy of design. I enjoy brainstorming and fostering collaboration through community events, workshops and talks.

I started sharing my know-how in UX first by writing for Harvard Business Review Turkey. I have extended this to a broader audience with multiple channels: keynote talks, lectures and workshops. I have co-founded the Women in Business Club in my university and my passion for community building only continued from that on. I volunteered for Turkish Women’s International Network in New York, co-opened-up OpenIDEO Berlin Chapter with 5 more amazing human-beings and work in the leadership team. I try to mentor as many young talents as possible from my university network with their career growth. I believe that strong communities can make significant impact in designing better futures!
