About Me

Who am I? I don’t know what you know about me, what you should know, or are you questioning why you’re reading this page right now, but before I introduce myself, I want to tell you why I wrote this blog.

Why am I keeping this diary?

From Martin Luther King, there is a great quote that I’ve practiced in my life for many years, maybe you know;

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

I mean someone else, he says.
Not yourself.
Others.
For others.
Life is actually what we do for others and not for ourselves.

That’s why I spend my life always doing something useful for people.

If you’re reading this post, I hope I’ve written something that might be useful to you anywhere on my site.

I’ll be sharing my many memories of my short life when you are going through the same path as a young, engineer, student, woman, employer, employee, volunteer, trainee adjectives that I’ve carried for a period of time.

Or you can only read it because you are interested.

I don’t have enough time to tell them all yet but I will try to add as much as I can. And so you will be able to find all the beautiful stories of my travels, the details of the foreign languages I’ve learned, the informations about university I graduated and the places I’ve visited.

Who knows, maybe for the first time, you can live the same thing that I’ve been through.

Didn’t you wonder how I reacted?

Who am I?

I’m Gülbin. I was born in Mardin, I grew up in Konya. I completed all my education in Konya, including the university. It is an inescapable fact that one of the most beautiful city in Turkey is Konya which is I hate when I was a student. (You know the deficits of our education system better than I did.)

Actually, I thought that my biggest dream was not to be a Genetic Engineer, in my later years. My biggest dream is to see every part of the world, learn as much as I can and help as many people as I can. I learned that as long as it happened.

I have graduated from Selcuk University, Department of Food Engineering, and I am continuing my master’s degree in Food Hygiene and Technology.

I want to complete all the chapters I’ve read before I’m 30, but since travel has a greater passion for me, I don’t think I can graduate from them all in 4-5 years 🙂

My biggest goal after my graduation was to enter a job related to my profession, outside Turkey.

I’ve done this, as well as starting out at a large chocolate factory.

I have been in France, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK. Perhaps I’ve had the most comfortable and most exciting period of my life while working as a white collar in a corporate firm.

My Goals

That sounds very ambitious when you say it, actually.

Yes, maybe this is the most important sign of life that everyone should have.

The goals you need to reach for your life, the goals you will reach when you finish the school, the goals that will make you happy, the goals that will make your family happy, the goals that will make your country happy, even the goals that will make the world happy.

One of my greatest goals for my life is that there is no place left in the world that I don’t see.

I actually want to travel, but I also want to be able to get answers to my questions how I can help.

And try to do that.

To cause a person’s happiness and smile.

I want the same thing for my family too, of course.

One of my most important goals in life is to protect the happiness and peace of my family.

To make them proud of me.

My clever, talented brothers and sisters and my parents who have raised me in every respect, will always deserve the best of everything.

I apologize in advance for any misconceptions or mistakes in my writing.
If you have anything to say what you feel, please share with me!

Best regards,

Gülbin,
