After spending the first 15 years of my life in **Vancouver**, Canada, (awesome city) I moved back to Turkey and finished high school at ACI (American Collegiate Institute) in Izmir. Having studied American Culture and Literature I then went on and completed an MBA programme at Bilgi University. Then I started teaching at American Collegiate Institute in 2004. Not being able to resist the incredible energy of Istanbul, I moved to this great city and happily started teaching at Terakki Foundation Schools.
