The Short Version
Hi! I am Özge, originally from Istanbul, but an international citizen of the world, mostly spend my time on travelling even though I am currently working as a full-time employee in Hamburg. I like learning languages and dream about living in any country in the world where I feel home.
The Long Version
After my semester abroad in Germany from 2010 to 2011, I knew that traveling was something I was strongly passionate about. So when I was back to my home Istanbul, I was determined to study my master´s in Germany, and that decision forever changed my life.
Upon graduating with my Master´s degree in International Relations and Development Policy, I managed to do an internship in Geneva, Switzerland. Turning back to Germany, I found a job in Hamburg as a project officer. Since then, I am working there.
Like many people, I was taught to go to college, get a job, get married, have kids and live happily ever after. I never thought that chasing the societal idea of “success” would lead me to an unfulfilling and unhappy life. Then I asked myself: Why am I here and what is my purpose for existing? That´s why, every weekend I have been leading different trips to some of beloved destinations and feeling the pure fulfillment.
