From Daughter to Mother.

“My mother was an incredible woman. With her appearance and her confidence, she would light up any room she entered. She had a strong vision for art, architecture, and life. She could make friends from all walks of life and manage to be at the center of everyone’s life. She convinced me that a woman can achieve anything she puts her mind to and that she has no reason not to believe it. We need more women like this in our society because strong women are the ones who will shape Turkey’s future.”
