I have born in Çanakkale in 1993. After I complete my secondary education at Çanakkale High School, I started my undergraduate education in Ege University Journalism program. I have lived in Poland in 2014 for 6 months as part of Erasmus exchange program. After returning from Poland, I started to work in a local newspaper in Izmir. After I graduated from Ege University, I have moved to Istanbul and started to work here. Then, I was accepted in Master's program in Kadir Has University. I published a thesis here regarding "clickbait news", which is named "News Readers' Perception of Clickbait News". I am currently working in BirGun Daily as an internet editor and interested in data/multimedia journalism.
I can describe myself as a hardworking and open-minded person. My biggest code in the work is to deliver the wanted job on time, prepared with the best effort. I consider myself as a responsible person and I am eager to learn new things, every day. I love teaching myself new skills and practice via the internet and online courses.
