My name is George Rohrich, I am a senior at Portland State University studying International Development. Over the past few years I have worked in the field of social work, and am now working to take my career to an international level. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking and rafting with friends, having a coffee or tea with a good read.
I was born here in Turkey and will be spending the next year here studying both Turkish and political and international sciences. The city I am now living in, Istanbul, is a tapestry of different cultures, histories, and peoples and I look forward to sharing some of those features here with you!
I will be eager to explore certain topics about life in Turkey (think of me as your cultural personal investigator here!) which we can discuss, but I will also be taking a look at simple day-to-day things, and maybe we can look at some cultural differences and similarities. I’ll also be looking to you guys for questions and answers on what you find interesting here!
Good luck to everyone and let’s have an awesome term!
