Hi everyone, my name is Yelda and I’m a journalist. I was born and raised in Ankara, TR, keen on writing since shortly after my date of birth. Before I finished the journalism department, I started to be interested in data journalism. Then I did an internship on this field. I have been trained in many issues related to media and civil society fieldwork. I've been unemployed for a year. I aim to make an academic career in the media field.
