I am currently a student at Central St. Martins College of Art&Design studying BA Performance Design&Practice. Although born in Turkey, I was raised in the UK therefore I’m fluent in English. I’m passionate about what I do and feel strongly about being in the colourful and creative and environment that I am in.

Skills
First of all I’m a good communicator, I know how to speak and act where and when and I enjoy working with people as well as individually. I’ll never fail to smile, and am considered, by myself and other people, to be a very positive and outgoing person.
My imagination will never be shallow, and I will keep on going until I've achieved my goal, which drives me to be quite solution oriented.
Model making is my strength but I also trust my designing, technical and presentation skills. As a part of my course I am taught how to make garments, models and bigger complicated sets and sculptures, which I also have experience in doing in professional life.
Good at, and greatly enjoy, any hand crafts.
