My name is Hazal. I cannot tell you who I am but I can tell you a little ‘about me’.
I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Turkey, that makes the headlines quite often about its political controversies. I was blessed to be an only child of a nuclear family of me and my loving parents.
I was encouraged to do many things that I could not have imagined… But my journey truly started when I decided to move away from my home.
I found myself attending a high school in Nova Scotia, Canada, staying with people that I’d never known, at the age of 16. Little did I know—courage actually comes from not knowing much. I learned that fairly quickly and developed my ideas about world, alone in that world.
After completion of high school, I decided that I wanted to pursue a career as a lawyer and do that while exploring Europe. I attended the University of South Wales under BA Business and Law major. I was exposed to a totally different environment and got to know myself a little more. A career of trying to defend justice while being in the middle of injustice was too corrupt for me to handle. I was emotionally tired and wanted to go back home.
Early 2015, after having enough of the comfort of Turkey, I decided to attend Trinity Western University in Langley, British Columbia. It was a hit or miss, one last shot at trusting my instincts. Ask me now! We have experienced a heavy snow 2017 winter, I still like this place and what it has to offer.
I am currently in Washington, DC, soaking up the environment of politics and passion. I hope to continue my life chasing stories around the globe. I currently study BA in Media and Communications, and a minor in Human Kinetics. I hope to contribute to this world as one of the brave journalists to enlighten ones that I can.
Thank you for stopping by. In these pages of scribbles, I hope that you get to know me a little bit more.
