I am humble.
I am an inspired.
I am sincere.
I consider myself a person of simple taste. I have objectives that I feel I can accomplish in ample time. I fear taking risks, and I feel certain risks might end up with greater problems. However, confronting those risks and accepting them as part of life is something everyone should do. You have to accept challenges and pursu e goals regardless of others or the potential risks. Taking a risk gives you a greater chance of succeeding.

I am a person who is capable of adjusting to change whether that is meeting new people or adjusting to new environments. I am deeply passionate about my family. When I arrived in the United States, I was fairly young. My mother is from Uzbekistan and my father is from Turkey, which is why I have an appreciation for different cultures. I enjoy having intellectual conversations with people and learning about their culture as well as their beliefs. For me, it brings about an entirely new way of looking at people.
My life’s mission statement is to dedicate myself to what I love but be willing to change myself for the better. Ultimately, I would love to pursue a career in global studies. I feel that I could work in a government entity or a national community, such as with the United Nations or the U.S. Department of the State. I would be most comfortable in this type of setting because I would be able to work alongside a diverse set of individuals and bring something new to the table. Cooperation is one of the biggest issues in the work that I am interested in doing. People are so committed to their own ideologies and beliefs, which interferes with policymaking that impacts everyone. I would like to work to change that.
