"As I move ahead in life and take on new responsibilities, I understand more deeply the value and contribution of the education I received in middle and high school as well as the environment I grew up in. I am proud that my schoolmates are making a difference with their achievements and with their very characters. As I get to know our sister schools and our graduates from different generations, I realize that I am a member of a much larger family than I thought during my studies here. Throughout my life, I have learned through much experience and observation that the development of educational institutions is directly proportional to the grduates taking ownership and providing support to the institution. I want to protect these uniquely beautiful resources overseen by the Foundation and contribute to their development in a way that creates value not only in Turkey, but also at the international level.
