After completing my school life, I had the opportunity to live in many countries, but I felt like my soul belonged to Canada; therefore I returned back to Montreal. My first professional work experience was in Scotia Bank, Montreal. At the end of my 4th year at the bank, I decided to return back to school again and applied to the MBA program at McGill University.
While studying in this program, I traveled to Israel and Japan as an exchange student and had the opportunity to work in a startup company. My mom called me to Istanbul after completing my degree and wanted me to support her with Keystone and Kilittaşı Schools.
After graduating, and many years, I moved back to Istanbul. Even with my mom, we had many long working hours from 8 am-9 pm, I realized how much I loved working in the education sector and decided that I can spend my whole life in this sector. However my desire was for Toronto, Canada. With the support and experience of my mom, we have opened our Keystone International Schools in Toronto. The passion for working in the education sector is to know that every day will be a new day with new experiences and to understand that the next day will be a different day again. This is what makes me motivated and excited all the time. It makes me happy to share my education experience and student life with other students in our school and to be able to touch their lives and shape their future together.
