Can’t leave out this then-and-now post with Zehra! It has been two years since we last saw each other in NYC. None of us would of thought that we were to meet again in Istanbul =)
Frankly, I didn’t expect any friendship when I added Zehra on Facebook, since we just chatted briefly at a pastry shop where she was working. One day, her FB post sparked a conversation, and we met. And we met again. And again.
Zehra gets me; partly because we have both chosen to live in a new city away from our families, partly because we think alike. Since the first day I got to know her, I found her fascinating. She knows to listen to her heart and follow her dreams. She assures me that it’s okay to be different.
I am very grateful to have Zehra in my life. See you somewhere in the world again!
