What inspires you?
Knowing that I'm not the only one inspires me greatly! Especially TakingITGlobal shows me that we are a lot, we care a lot and we can really change! Seeing the great, real possibility of change inspires me, reading books, listening music, traveling, meeting with new lives, knowing new people inspires me. Sun inspires me, love inspires me, working inspires me ... And results inspire me to do more!
Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.
In a way, all issues around us, all the things that makes us unhappy matter to me! Human Rights is one of them! Because I think human rights is the key factor which affects our life! That's why I'm working as human rights activist for more than 7 years actively! Because other matters like cultural diversity, enjoy mother language, education, health problem refers to the same "human rights" issue.
Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.
A good leader is the one who is aware of what is going on in the world, what we should do and how. For me good leader is not a dictator or ruler of a community. Good leader is the one who knows how to listen to others, give importance to their voice, ask for their ideas, value all people equally in his/her group! And for the practical way, he/she should be organized and faithful!
Do you think TakingITGlobal can help you achieve some of your goals? Have we already? Please tell us how.
Of course!!! That's why I'm connecting and really taking everything global for three years! I had already found contacts for my projects, sent e-cards( meaningful ones to my beloved friends), create discussion groups and shared it with my classmates during my graduate years, found people and many events to realize myself, I promoted my own projects and organizations!
I also joined TIG as volunteer, and improved the Turkish page :)
Also right now, editing human rights issue page and believe I am reaching more people! In short, TIG inspires me, I am involved and I always can reach and give information about the globe, about us, all of us! :)
