Middle Schoolers are getting prepared for the school musical's opening night... The curtain will rise soon and the young actors will act their hearts out. They may not become professional actors when they grow up, yet theatre will help their personal, social, mental and physical development and also help them improve intra and interpersonal skills. By learning how to appreciate art and to express themselves, they will have a more positive self-concept and attitude towards life. That's why drama education at schools have an important role in transforming students into confident adolescents.

Born in Ankara and raised in Istanbul, I studied psychology and marketing and worked in advertising sector. For the last two decades, I have been living in various parts of Asia, calling Seoul, Bangkok, Taipei and currently Beijing home. Photography helps me see things.
