After living in Brussels for several years, Özlem recently burst out of the EU bubble and relocated to London where she works as a lawyer. Özlem discovered that she was a feminist at 13 when she was told off for having a bob haircut — apparently girls are meant to have long hair. Since then, Özlem believes that women should be free to find their own paths in life and shouldn’t be burdened by society’s pressure of who they should be, or how they should look. One of her favourite quotes is “Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?” – Malala Yousafzai. It’s something Özlem always asks herself. When she’s not daydreaming about living in a better world, Özlem’s hobbies include interior design, ballet, cheese, detox retreats and wine tasting trips. The top thing on her bucket list is to dance in a flash mob.
