Having graduated from Istanbul university law faculty in 2001, Nurdeniz opened her own law office focusing on business and contract law. Now, she is turning her attention to disability rights in Turkey and the Guide Dog Association is part of this effort.
As the president of the Association, she is working to advance the legal status and standard of living for the visually impaired in Turkey.
She was inspired to work for more disability rights in Turkey after traveling to the UK and United States and seeing the much better conditions that exist there for the disabled community. Nurdeniz has been visually impaired since the age of 10, so this issue is personal to her.Follow Nurdeniz on Twitter!
