Letter to the family

My age is 32 years. I am of Turkish origin. I am currently residing in İstanbul/Turkey with my parents.

If I may, please tell you a little bit about myself: I graduated from Istanbul University, the most established university in Turkey, with a degree in Economics. Then I got a master's degree in economics. I wrote my thesis in Europe in the Czech Republic. I stayed there for six months.

During my school years, I volunteered in a variety of organizations. All these organizations were about to children's health, school educations and etc. Here, I learned a great deal about child education. These were lessons that would help children's psychology as well as their schoolwork. Working with children of various ages in these organizations has been an eye-opening experience for me. Working with children of many ages and socioeconomic backgrounds taught me how not to approach them. Being a part of a child's development is extremely meaningful to me as someone who adores children. That is why I enjoy and desire babysitting. Yes, I make more money, but believe me when I say that the spiritual bliss it brings me is indescribable. Being a second family to the children and families I care for and being able to make a difference in their lives means a lot more to me.

I've visited nearly 35 nations so far, ranging from America to Russia, Spain to the United Arab Emirates. I continue to do so whenever I have the opportunity. Aside from that, I am interested in outdoor activities. Puffy is the name of my cat. I love her and all animals so much!

I work professionally as a project manager in a multinational American company. For a brief period of time, I also worked in Dubai. Then I returned to my country. I wish to work overseas to strengthen my foreign language skills as well as acquire exposure to different cultures. I also understand that the opportunities abroad will be better for me and will provide me with experiences that I will not be able to gain in my home country.

Below is a list of my childcare experience:

-I looked after a six-year-old boy who had a gluten allergy. With the nutrition program I designed for him, I kept a close eye on his health issues.
- I looked after a very hyperactive 3 year old boy, from the age of one to three years old. He was an abrasive child. I learned how to approach such children from the pedology books and research I read during this time period. It's been a fantastic experience for me.
-I took care of many processes while working with Melisa 9 years old, an asthma patient, from washing her clothes without perfume to monitoring her medication, from airing her room to doctor appointments.

I believe in myself and my abilities. I consider taking care of kids to be a hobby rather than a source of income. That is why I enjoy looking at children so much.
I have cared for the children of four different families up until today. During this time, I read a lot of pedology books and worked on myself. With their references, the families I looked after recommended me to other families. It's about me succeeding and my family seeing it.
