Fatma is an early staage researcher at Jagiellonian University. She graduated with Masters’s from Istanbul Medeniyet University while she was working as a full-time lawyer. Following the footsteps of the EU, with the new legislation, data protection law became one of the most trending work fields in Turkey. While working in this field she felt the absence of my lack of knowledge in technology a lot. She tried to learn by herself, but the broadness of the technical field scarred her and as a result, she thought she could not make it on my own.
While she was working in a job close to her house, which is like a miracle in Istanbul, and trying to finish her thesis, the pandemic happened. Like the rest of the world, she stayed at home and baked bread and questioned her choices in life a lot. As a result, she came to the conclusion that she do not want to spend her whole life in Istanbul as a lawyer. Thus, she began the quest to broaden my horizons. During my search, she came across the advertisement for the project, and she felt jurists who are living in another part of the world felt the same urge her but instead of scaring from it, they have worked on the topic and even wrote a project about it.
