Stuff About Me:

I became interested in Bridge to Turkiye after a university course project on young adult literature centered on the authentic portrayal of children from Central Asia.  But most of all, it was the influence of my good friend Sule Ancieta, who is Turkish-American, and her work to raise money for girls' education in Turkey, and to stop the growing trend of child brides in Anatoly, Turkey.
