Stories from us

Sevim Sözen

Ford Otosan Quality Assurance Department / Personnel

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I have been working at Ford Otosan for 13 years. I have a seven-year-old daughter. In my free time, I like to travel.

Tell us about how you first became acquainted with the Vehbi Koç Foundation and your connection?
I was one of the first people to attend the marbling (Ebru) course, which is how I was introduced to the Vehbi Koç Foundation. We were in a competition to do marbling one day a week. Those were wonderful, enjoyable times. Later, I enrolled in a musical instrument course with my spouse, but I couldn’t do it and gave up. In addition to the courses, I also attend events at the VKV Ford Otosan Gölcük Cultural and SocialCenter such as plays, concerts and exhibitions. I make a special effort to take my daughter to the children’s theater.

What are your future plans and goals?
My plans for the future are more about my daughter than about me. I am doing everything I can to make her future beautiful.

What role does VKV play in your life?
VKV adds beauty to our life. And not just to mine, it has spiced up life for everyone in Gölcük. Concerts and theaters come right to our doorstep. I would like to express my eternal gratitude to Pınar and Fulya for all of these wonderful things. I’m so glad that VKV has entered our lives and that it resulted in us meeting all of these beautiful people…
