Introducing Zeki, 22, an Urban and Regional Planner from Australia!
1. How would you describe the city you live in?
Full of opportunity! Melbourne has consistently been ranked the most liveable city and for good reason, it’s a melting pot of people from all over the world, all bringing their unique cultures and beliefs to make a wonderful atmosphere that you just can't find anywhere else.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. What are you passionate about?
History and Language are my passions. A favourite Turkish saying of mine is, 'A people who forget their history will be wiped from history.’ I find that learning your nation's history and language gives you access to your forebears and teaches you important lessons going into the future.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. How have you spent the last year?
My year has been filled with study; I’m just about to finish my university degree and am also working at my new job. It’s been a challenge to adapt to a new and demanding role but I've managed to take it in my stride. And I'm really happy to be able to work in the field that I studied in.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Would you like to plug anything?
-The @shukr.foundation. It’s a charity for Uyghur refugees around the world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
