Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
First, I made a few activities of social work in school and participated in others' activities.
Then, I finished school and planned to study business. I started university.
At the same time, I started to work in sales for a year.
One day, I participated in a volunteering activity by mistake for the first time after finishing school.
It was a deep experience to me, and I found that I really love working with people and communities.
Then, I start to work at Techo and I dedicated my life to what I like.
At the same time, I changed my career and now I'm studying political science.
Now, I want to keep helping people and keep growing in what I do.
Keep following my journey

Day to Day

First, I feel lucky to work in what I love! There is nothing like waking up in the morning and going to a place that you like. I am a very sensitive person so the hardest thing in work is not being able to respond to all the people who need our help, but I really enjoy sharing with people who have different experiences and working close to passionate people. I feel comforted knowing that a lot of families trust in us.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Be creative, open minded, and take risks. Be passionate. Love living.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Thinking outside the box! In college most of what we learn is only about us, how can I be rich? How can I be successful? We live in a society that is outside waiting for us. I live in a country that depends on young people today, can't wait for tomorrow!

Hurdles

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"You don't win anything by volunteering. You need to work in a big corporation to be successful."
