I am a third-year student at SCI-Arc, I seek opportunities that will enable me to expand my work experiences, academic background, and international outlook, for the summer of 2023.

I have a strong academic track record and I am looking forward to bringing my skills and abilities to the team.

My past work experience allowed me to develop skills in planning implementation and directing design activities in time-sensitive competition projects. Most recently at SOUR, an international architectural firm, I was responsible for the creative design idea of a competition located in the Philippines. In the limited given time, collaborating in a team and delegating tasks under stress was a big rewarding experience for me. 

Being raised both in Turkey and the United States enabled me to integrate both cultures. As a self-motivated and passionate individual, with the above-mentioned working experiences and background While I am grateful for the opportunities afforded to me in my prior position, I am ready to embark on a new career path that offers new challenges for me to put my skills to use.
