    EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
   
I truly believe that all students can succeed and become good writers as long as they have the perseverance, motivation, and dedication to do so. Becoming a good writer is not easy--it will take hours of studying and revising, a desire to read and write, as well as a strong work ethic.
     
    CURRENT PROJECTS
     I am currently doing research on Turkish students residing in Germany, mostly in Hamburg and Berlin, and how the linguistic issues facing them today hinder them from assimilating into the German culture.
 
     
    INTERESTS
   
I love to watch old movies, mostly the classics, and I love to read and draw. I am also interested in sociolinguistics and semantics.
