Gulesin Nemutlu Unal


Once, a man said: "There are two things one should never delegate; your own learning and saying thank you". At another time, a woman said: "It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end". I think they were both very wise. To complete the picture of my understanding of learning, I would also add "Serious is not necessary to be boring. I'm up to learning experiences which are seriously fun!"
