By tradition, our 3 BLITZ QUESTIONS::


  • A book that I can recommend?

Probably I would recommend: “Atlant Shrugged” by Ayn Rand and also “The Financier” by Theodore Dreiser.  


  • Event that changed my life?

I think everyday events and how one did react to these events change the life of a person. In my case there are two events: 1. I read an article about the Bosphorus swimming race and decided to take the challenge. After this, I understood that any big and “scary” challenge is achievable when the right things are done day by day. 2. I opened my own business. Running a business means that you always have to be ready to solve different problems and only you are responsible for it.


  • What else can I teach students?

How to set goals in life and how to achieve them. Any questions concerning the admission process into top universities.
