About me & my work:

I am a career diplomat with working experience in a variety of challenging environments from the Balkans to Afghanistan. Currently I am heading the department for G20 Outreach and Engagement at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Having discovered "coworking" experiences of social entrepreneurs and change-makers and got fascinated by the idea of sharing an inspiring space for creative collaboration and innovation, I am also connecting with people to explore these exciting concepts through Project InnoMate. InnoMate organizes three Meetup Groups in Brussels, Luxembourg and Istanbul.

With the team at InnoMate Istanbul, we have developed Project InnoCampus which will be a pop-up innovation platform travelling to universities in Turkey starting from March 2015:

Convinced of the power of peer solidarity, I launched a networking initiative among Turkish professionals in Brussels in October 2012 which was extended later to include non-Turkish professionals interested in Turkey. The initiative was coined "Turkish Connections Platform".

I am passionate about human rights and social justice and writing a blog on the topic of my ongoing Ph.D. research on muslim political participation and human rights.

I am interested in transformative coaching and mindfulness as a means to achieve clarity of purpose in life.
