Here, I have found more than just colleagues – I’ve found a family that uplifts each other. This firm has been the wind beneath my wings, fueling both my personal and professional growth. It’s a place where I feel unbridled, where I am empowered to soar to new heights, and I am not afraid to fall as the firm has proven over and over again to be behind all of us. We don’t just navigate change; we are the change. And the journey? It’s as thrilling as a flight over the Bosphorus at sunset!” This sentiment, filled with warmth and sincerity, encapsulates Deniz’s deep appreciation for her colleagues, her passion for her work, and her love for her Turkish roots.
