About Me

I was born to Turkish Cypriot parents in the early 60's in London.

As they struggled to find their way in a strange and freezing cold country, their young family grew.

 

I knew at an early age that I would be different from all the other girls in my extended family and those I met at school.

More than anything...I needed to be free, autonomous. I had no idea of the price I had to pay to get the freedom I craved.

I have a story to tell.....

I've done a fair few things in my life.

Here's a short list of the things I'm most proud of:
