APS Education & Diversity Intern
American Physical Society
I am currently a junior at Bowdoin College, pursuing a double major in Physics and Computer Science. I am an international student from Istanbul, Turkey and I have attended the United World College in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, where I had the opportunity to live and learn with peers from 60 different countries.
Even though I have always wanted to study physics, the close-knit physics community at my college was definitely a deciding factor. At Bowdoin, I co-lead Women in Physics, Girls Who Code, and the International Student Association. Throughout my life, I have been lucky to be a part of many amazing groups where I collaborated with exceptional people on community outreach and mentorship programs - encouraging more diversity and inclusion in STEM is my passion! I have no doubt that my time working with APS this summer will be as exciting and rewarding.
