Had an amazing skiing season this year. I won eight medals and one cup in the competitions. This year, I was vice-captain of Boun Skiing Team. Because of my achievements, I could come to the forefront and it was only my second year. I took responsibility to sustain unity and prepared the team for competitions. An opportunity which I have wanted to do for a long time took a place. I got in contact with Istanbul Skiing Agency. I joined the National Skiing Championships. Firstly, Istanbul’s Championship was in Erzurum, Paladoken. I got first place in women's giant slalom and slalom. Then, the Turkish Alpine Skiing Championship selection for B league was organized at Kayseri, Erciyes and again I won first place. Through the season, I joined the many competitions of National Alpine Skiing and I won gold, silver, and bronze medals. Finally, I took third place in the sum of points. Skiing was always one of my favs that I am doing with passion. I felt so honored by the end result. I will continue to ski for new achievements in the next season.
