This country has given me so much.
That’s why I spend so much of my time trying to make a contribution in whatever way I can.

My dad was a political activist in Turkey but had to flee when his life was put in danger. This country not only took him in but several years later allowed us to join him so that we could reunite as a family. I can never forget that this country saved my dad’s life and gave us home; it housed us, educated us and cared for us.
