A few days ago, I gave a presentation about world hunger. It was a presentation I gave to my friends in the faculty. I basically mentioned the things I mentioned in my previous blog here in VoY. So while preparing my presentation, I did a little research about how hunger and the right to access food was mentioned in the documents about human rights. Besides the mentioning of access to food in the 25th segment of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, I came across something...

Hello everyone! 16th of October is World Food Day, which is a day where people from all over the world show their commitment to act towards ending world hunger. And I decided to prepare a presentation for the people in my faculty about world hunger in order to inform them about the subject. Now, I have always considered hunger as an important issue (I mean who wouldn't?) But I have never realized how much there is about hunger that we don't know. In this article I want to share...

Last week in İstanbul, a woman named Hande Kader was burned to death. She was only 23 years old. She was a transsexual woman, a sex worker and an activist. Her murder was a hate crime, 4 men forcefully held her, tortured her and then burned her alive. But this blog won't be about the people who murdered her. I won't curse them, I won't shout "what kind of monsters there are on this earth?" Because the thing is, there is no such thing as a monster. There are just us humans. Hum...

Today I want to tell you about a very special place I had been in a few days ago. I have made great memories there with the people I've met and I consider myself rather blessed to be able see and remember what that city stood for. This the story of that city. Çanakkale, located on the east coast of the Aegean Sea, is one of the two cities in Turkey (other is Istanbul) which connects two continents, Europe and Asia. And also It is a city that connects two seas: Aegean and Marmara...

A few weeks ago I was at Hatay, Turkey. I went there to visit my father's village. Hatay is a wonderful city for the ones who don't know. It is located in the south part of Turkey, and through its thousands of years history, it has hosted many civilizations and is still a home to many people from many cultures. My father's village is a small place with the most peaceful and loving people. Despite being very different from the place I live, I always enjoy being there and spending ti...

"3...2...1...", "This is it, time to make history!". These were the lines that were said by the characters of the cartoon "Loud House" as Nickelodeon introduced its first married gay couple. An introduction more valid than that couldn't be made. Before I tell why, let me describe the scene a little bit. It is a scene which a gay and bi-racial couple, Howard and Harold McBride, drop off their son Clyde at a slumber party. So they are not just a same-sex couple, they are also multi...

Within the last five months two major terrorist attacks occurred in the capital of Turkey, Ankara. The first one happened on 10.10.2015, during a peace meeting which people and organizations from all over the country joined. Two bombs exploded with seconds between them, right before the meeting started. Nearly hundred people died and ISIS claimed the action. The second one happened last week on 17.02.2016. A military service vehicle with personnel in it was crashed by a car w...

Last week in Sivas, Turkey, a special transportation device called the Pink Taxi began its services. The Pink Taxi is different to a regular taxi in a few ways: first of all it is pink; secondly it only operates between 8.00 and 20.00; and lastly the driver is a woman and it only serves women and their companions. The reason behind this invention is to protect women: protect them from harassment, violence or rape. At least that is what the supporters of this application claim....

This is an actual memory of mine that I just needed to share, I was in my classroom waiting for the lecture to start when I overheard two of my friends talking. "I had the craziest dream last night," said the boy sitting behind me to the other one. "Two women were sitting together and they were absolutely quiet." Both I, without turning around, and the other boy, shocked, waited for him to continue. Although I knew what was coming so I glanced at the two girls next to me, qui...
