Burcu Bas (TR)

Hey all!

My name is Burcu Baş. I am twenty six years old girl, and I live in burcuErbaa-Turkey with my family. I graduated from ELT department of Samsun 19 Mayıs Univercity 2 years before. And I’ve been working as English teacher for two years. To teach, to help students, to experience with children and to eduacate is the highest wisdom in the world.

I describe myself as a helpful, cheerful, positive thinking,friendly and honest girl who is also open-minded to new ideas and who is eager to gain new experiences. I am also interested in the new people around me and work with children and young people in a community where people of different outlook on life. I like helping young people to become self-confident and independent personalities. I am pretty inquisitive girl and being inquisitive is a gift. A gift because there’s always something new to learn, you’re a student of life until the end of your life. As free time activities, I like reading books about geography and different cultures but especially books that help personal developmant. I also watch a lot of travelling documentaries. I am in love with movies. My other activities and interests include listening to music, spending time with my friends and family, doing sports. I also enjoy doing voluntary work because I want to make myself useful in the world and help others in need.

I also want to state that in your visit to Turkey, I’ll help you about translation for your communication with local people. You can ask help whenever and whatever you need about culture,language,information etc. I have been in Tokat for years,so I will be your host as a Turkish.

In my opinion, this project will help all of us to make new friendships, to gain new experiences, to share different cultures and visions. So, this is one of the most important part of this project. You know, most people in the modern society care about earning as much money as possible, I care about earning trust and skills, love and understanding. I care about the value of things, rather than the price. I want to help people as much as I can, and save them whilst being saved from the materialism that slowly incorporates the world. I always want to make a difference. I want to finish my brief presentation with my favorite quote: “A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything but the value of nothing.” So let’s know the value of our friendship altogether. Hope you enjoy your time in Turkey.

See you all soon!
