|Divisions / Motivations
I was born in Cyprus, on the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea at the crossroads of Africa, Asia and Europe. Cyprus has become and remains divided geographically for more than half a century, however, the social and political divisions between the two major communities of the island dates even further back than the physical divisions.

Two simple answers. As for how, being a member of the millennial generation of Cyprus. As for why, is that I believe lasting social peace can be constructed by raising citizens who believe in equality between different groups, who can think about identity in multiple terms, who adopt the values of culture of peace; in schools that educate citizens in a democratic, humanitarian and peaceful manner.

I personally consider the processes more striking than the moments. In this respect, every initiative I contributed as part of the Cyprus Turkish Teachers Trade Union (KTÖS), the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR), the International Peace Bureau (IPB) and the Technical Committee on Education for the Cyprus Peace Talks held under the auspices of the United Nations, is quite valuable for me.
