Bige Akar

Communications Assistant

Bige completed her undergraduate degree in Philosophy at Boğaziçi University in 2015. She hopes to complete her master’s degree in Civil Society Organizations Management and Social Projects at Bilgi University, which she started the same year. During the sophomore year of high school, she spent a year in the Philippines with the Intercultural Exchange Program (American Field Service). In Manila, where she spent her exchange year, she learned to be a part of a different culture and family, and at the same time she learned to see the problems of his country and the world from the broader picture.

She stepped into volunteerism and peer education after she returned.  After her internships at EMBARQ Sustainable Transportation Association and Amnesty International, she gained her first professional work experience at Boğazici University Alumni Association. Since she joined to Education Reform Initiative in 2016 as a Communications Assistant, she has been working to announce ERG’s activities to everyone.

Bige likes reading books, dancing, travelling from time to time and cycling around the neighbourhood she was born in.
