Hi, my name is Asil and I was born in Istanbul, Turkey and am currently living here in the United States. It deeply saddens me to see the current state that Turkey is in in regards to recent targeted attacks all across the country. Back when this was first made, there were very rarely headlines describing some of the terrible things that are going on now.
I am so grateful to have been able to move to this country but still have a lot of pride for my home country and want to share some experiences that I have had while living there and compare modern day life for both Turkey and here in America.
I currently work in construction and am a father of 2 amazing children. When I am not on my computer or at work you can find me spending as much time as possible with them and my wife of 22 years. There is nothing more important in my life than my family and am forever grateful that they are able to live in a country where they don’t have to live in constant fear.
