Hey, I am Ogulcan! I am from Izmir, and I am Turkish. I graduated from Middle East Technical University, Foreign Language Education program in 2022. When I was in Turkey, I had a chance to teach English to young learners and English preparatory school students face-to-face. Also, I taught and tutored online for two years. I like singing and creative writing.
