Our New Trainee: İclal

  • Can you introduce yourself?

I am Iclal, 22 years old Turkish girl, studying International Logistics Management at Yasar University in İzmir as a senior student. Since the beginning of my education,  I am an ESN volunteer which is the biggest student association in Europe. As Erasmus Student Network, we offer help to exchange students in their academic, social and practical integration process under the discipline of  “Student Helping Student”. It was the greatest experience of my life. Other than volunteering, one of my interests is entrepreneurship. I am currently carrying on my start-up project which is named Glocalzone with my partner. Basically what we are doing is solving the access problem of the locals to some products which do not exist in the market by bringing them via travelers.

  • Why did you choose Prague? What was your motivation?

I believe that most of you know about “Once Erasmus Always Erasmus” quote. Last year, I was an Erasmus student in Poland and it was a life-changing experience for me. It has widen my perspective through the life. When the time has come to make my internship, I was sure of becoming an Erasmus intern. One of my reasons to choose Prague is that I have heard lots of good comments on it. Besides its historical background, Prague is a modern city with the lifestyle. This harmony got my attention and I wanted to experience myself by being part of it. The other reason it that, Prague can be entitled as one of the most important start-up center. Since I have been maintaining and trying to develop my project, I believe Prague is the right place to be.
