Having worked at both Turkish- and English-language daily publications as a senior translator, editor and journalist for eleven years in Turkey, I nourished my translating, writing, editing and proofreading skills both in Turkish and English. I also took a strategic role in recruiting and leading editorial and social media teams.
While demonstrating outstanding teamwork and communication skills, I have also gained the ability to meet critical deadlines while still being adaptable and flexible at the busy environment of prestigious publications.
Over the course of my career, I have closely followed nearly all major national and regional events of the last decade, which equipped me with a vast background resource for current events in addition to an ongoing higher academic education in media and communication.
