United World Colleges Dilijan
United World Colleges is an education movement founded by Kurt Hahn during the Cold War in 1960 to
education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. It consist of
15 schools all around the globe, including Dilijan, Armenia, where I study now.
Back then in Turkey, or when I was staying by a host family in Germany, I could only dream of living in such
an international and diverse community. In our college, UWC Dilijan, we have around 170 students from ~60
different countries, each comming from different socio-economic backgrounds. It has been truly an eye-opening
experience for me so far, thanks to which, I explored my self and widened my world view.

İstanbul Cağaloğlu Anadolu Lisesi
2011-2015 (would be graduated in 2016)
Being established in 1850 during Ottoman Empire, it is the cirst civilian high school in Turkish Republic.
Formerly known as "İstanbul Girls' High School", now it's a mixed gender school. When sorted by the score
required from nation-wide exams to enter, it's the 5th high school in Turkey.
I studied 4 years there, including the preparation year, where I learned German. For the first time,
in CAL, I had the opportunity to experience a foreign culture: We had many German teachers, Herr Sölter being
the most memorable one for me, and we had student exchanges ("Schüleraustauch") annualy. At the end of my
preparation class, I went to Cologne (Köln) to stay by a host family for two weeks, which was also a great
opportunity to experience the German culture from a different and closer perspective.

Also, I can greet you in Armenian, and order bread, cheese, and wine.
As I love experimenting with new things, and reading blogs of programmers and well-written articles, I do
programming as a planned activity as well. I have founded Technology Club in UWC Dilijan, and created
