The Footwear Design and Manufacturing Program, which I chose willingly in 2017 and got into with a 100% scholarship, was one of the best decisions I made for my future. Thanks to the university's facilities, the workshops, fashion shows, "Students Consulting Experts" events, entrepreneurship courses and fairs helped us strengthen our bond with the industry, analyze the market and manage customer relations. I had the opportunity to show my designs and present them to the market thanks to the '2017 IUE Alumni Fashion Show' and '2017 Izmir Shoe Fair', I attended. Thanks to this, I started to work with many famous names and companies such as Demet Akalın and ATV Europe. I am now working as an Executive Assistant at the Güler Shoe Factory. I design for many brands like Ataköy Shoes & Bags, Panucci, Hotiç. Being part of Izmir University of Economics is a source of great pride for me. I would like to thank everyone who has contributed and still provides support to me.
