Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She took up shooting Para sport in 2004 in Giresun, Turkiye.
Why this sport?
Her friends encouraged her to get involved in the sport. "I was afraid to go out before [practising sports]. A lot of helpful people encouraged me to change that. My self-confidence came when I started sports. I can wander down the street and go to the park or the garden whenever I want, even without the help of anyone."

Other information
BEGINNER'S GOLD
She won gold at her first competition in 2004 in Giresun, Turkiye. The result convinced her to pursue shooting Para sport further. "I entered the competition on the insistence of my friends, with the idea that there should be a female athlete in the competition. I didn't know how to shoot properly at the time. I didn't even warm up, but I came first. Everyone congratulated me and that day my journey in the sport began." (fanatik.com.tr, 03 Dec 2018; skor.sozcu.com.tr, 18 May 2017)
