What makes this individual special, unique and a role model for others?

I am a painter and have my own studio. I had my own exhibitions home and abroad. In September I will be having my 8th personal exhibition in Wüpertal, Germany.

 

Proudest accomplishment

I was awarded first prize in Pol Art’s competition in Adana. Another of my paintings won a place in Genzyme’s Competition.

I also write poetry. My poem won first prize in a competition titled Teachers in Adana. My “Nature” poem won second place in another competition.

Words of wisdom about living with MPS

I send all my love to all the MPS Patients in the world

Despite everything, life is beautiful as long as we hang on to it tightly.
