What in your life has changed since meeting Arkhe Innovate?

It was two years ago when I participated in Arkhe Innovate's first project. I attended the agricultural and food entrepreneurship program and the week I arrived at Arkhe campus, I got a job in marketing at Arkhe and had a one-year journey working with Erkin that improved me incredibly. Meanwhile, I was on the physical campus so often that I found myself in close social ties. After that, I went to an EKA event with Arkhe Innovate and became a member of the EKA community. During my time at Arkhe this summer, I had the opportunity to come to the ImpactFest organized by Arkhe Innovate and get to know the position I am currently working in at ATÖLYE and the working atmosphere. At the end of the day, I was the guest of a journey in which I added a lot to myself in different fields such as agriculture, design, and urban planning, in which I wanted to improve myself. Currently, I want to specialize in areas such as urban design, urban agriculture, and visual design and combine this with social benefit.

The first 3 things that come to your mind about Arkhe Innovate:

Lovely Arkhe campus, knowing any idea related to social impact needs to be recognized, a warm community with networking
