Elif finished Kıvılcımlar during her UmAy stay and generously presented it with a good introduction in English so that Adrienne too was informed about their 8-month-long leadership program for female university students in Izmir, Turkey. Elif mentioned the highlights of the book from her perspective as the smart, hard-working, rebellious daughter of an immigrant family with five children based in Mersin. With this book, the NGO director is planning to raise funds and expand to other cities in Turkey, and willing to work with us as well. Thank you Elif!
