My name is Kaan, and I am an artist from Istanbul, Turkey. Living in a city almost twice as populated as New York, I learned to embrace and respect people as they are. I find that to be the key to survival in the modern world. Even though people around you may seem very different, we all share the same struggle for survival. For this reason, I always try to employ my mother's favorite saying: 'Givers create givers'. I always do my best to help people around me, whether it be small acts of kindness for strangers, or favors for friends and family. But like any other selfish creature, I do it because I believe it also benefits me by transforming the community around me into a more positive one. That is what I plan to do through TeenzTalk too: offer advice, share my personal experiences and point-of-views, in order to help other teens around the world. But also, to be able to tap into their expertise in areas that I lack insight in. TeenzTalk is a positive community which I believe is composed of only givers!
