Introducing Ziya, 23, a Physics student at İstanbul University!
1. How would you describe the city you live in?
İstanbul is a great city to visit; great hospitality, delicious food, clean streets, fantastic views and all that. But to me the greatest part of it is Zeytinburnu. Although it may seem like a chaotic place for some people, but aye it's truly a place that Uyghurs like us can call home.
2. What inspires you the most?
Passionate people. People that have a passion for life, not just living the same day over and over again. People that ask “why?”. People that are actually willing to dedicate their money, sweat, and time to achieve their goals. These kinds of people inspire me the most.
3. How have you spent the last year?
Learned how to dance (usul, lezginka, dolan), learned how to code (beginner level python, Linux terminal), and most importantly: I learned new ideas that changed my old view of the world.
