After graduating from high school in Turkey, I decided to pursue my degree at University of Toronto in lovely Canada. And this is how my journey started.
In September 2017, I started working at Scotiabank as a Solutions Architect under Global Banking and Markets. After my work term, I realized that I got an interest in business as well and realized that coding all day is not something that I really want. I did extensive research and attended workshops about project and product management, business analysis, and being a scrum master.
I have served on boards at student-led organizations including Co-op Students’ Association, Turkish Students’ Association, and Enactus. I have also served on committees at the university such as Council on Student Services. I got elected Member of the Campus Council and got appointed to the Academic Board of the Governing Council in 2019 to use my experiences to help students benefit from the university’s resources and gain valuable experiences and to bring the student voice to the university administration.
Currently, I am the Chief Communications Officer in a fast-growing start-up, Roll Scooters.
