Let’s get to know Gizem…

What’s your favorite book?

One of my favorite books is 'Flow' by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. It is about the key to happiness--finding and doing things that you are passionate about, things that give you purpose, which ultimately create an optimal experience and flow.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner?

I wish I didn't have to pick just one because I like them all for different reasons. Despite my small frame, I actually eat a lot--pretty much everything. Although I don't get a chance to have an actual breakfast during the week days, I never miss lunch and dinner.

If you had one free day to do anything you want, what would you do?

Since I enjoy simple things I would probably start with a nice breakfast, drive to a small ocean town to explore the galleries, walk by the beach, get some sun, then come back and sit by the pool to read or paint. I would try to end the day with dinner outdoors with a glass of red wine.

If you could live anywhere for one year, all expenses paid, where would you live?

Somewhere in Europe--a sunny coastal town surrounded with welcoming and warm people along with an intriguing culture. Maybe somewhere like Tuscany.

Fun facts: have anything interesting people should know about you?
