My fellow classmates are all from different backgrounds and cultures – so important when you’re learning about design and working in a creative team to have this diversity. My course leader is wonderful and really encourages me along my creative journey. I love discovering and travelling a lot so the UK has given me lots of opportunities to do this during my studies. I am from a very small city in Turkey - but Bournemouth just feels like home.
