About Me


Hello everyone :) I am Ahmet. I am a lecturer at a university here in İstanbul. I love travelling and meeting new people from different cultures. I teach English to undergraduates and doing my masters at the same time in Social Structure, Social Change. I am into sharing economy and believe that it serves greatly to the world in my vision and I do whatever I can to contribute to these kinds of platformas i.e Couchsurfing, Airbnb, BlaBlaCar etc. I love listening to people and they say I am a perfect listener. :) I am also a facilitator who worked in a community building gathering called "Anatolia Jam" for 4 years. Thanks to this experience, I learned a lot about how to build a community and psychology. I am very well equipped with some great tool for self-discovery which I am glady open to share. I love cooking too! If you have the ingredients, I can cook for you too with pleasure.

I'd love to meet great people to share and exchange ideas, perspectives and culture and host them back when they visit İstanbul!


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Because of my need of accomodation during my Erasmus Life. This is how it started. Then, my experience of it amazed me so much that I wanted to write a thesis on Sharing Economy. Therefore, my presence on this platform means more than finding a pillow to hit my head.


I also miss the feeling of being supported by a total stranger. It kinda gives me hope and I think it is the best form of giving and receiving.
