My father emigrated from Turkey to Sweden when he was 17 to create a better future for both himself and his future family. My sisters and I were raised with the belief that everything’s possible, as our parents instilled in us the philosophy of perceiving challenges not as impediments but as prospects.

When I started my career at Nordea, the largest financial services group in the Nordic region, I experienced what impact you can have by investing in companies and being a valuable shareholder to help and cheer from the sideline. During my time as a consultant, I quickly realized that I derive great joy in continuously meeting new companies, tackling new projects, and being confronted with questions that had no immediate answers.

I was taught that declaring something unattainable was the surest way to ensure its impossibility. For me, there is never a solitary route to a particular objective. I never take no for an answer. I love the challenges when you actually wish you knew the way forward, but you may only know 50% of the required knowledge and must forge ahead, discovering the way while in motion.

As part of the Creandum family, I am eager to flatten the regulatory path to build the future of the firm.

In my leisure hours, I delight in spending quality time with family and friends, going skiing, and exploring diverse forms of art and cultures. When on travel, my boyfriend and I always seek out guided tours of exhibitions to gain a deeper understanding of the artists behind them. Witnessing the enduring beauty of art and the ability to create something with lasting impact never ceases to captivate me.
