I am a 36-year-old English woman who has been married and divorced in Turkey. My ex-husband was Turkish and I lived there for four years from 2005-2009. I was young and naive when I had gotten married. I didn't have my eyes wide open, and I didn't know until it was too late what kind of physical and emotional pain I would endure; It was more emotional pain than anything. It still haunts me to this day. It had made me completely miserable and want to give up hope on life. But I made a brave decision and got divorced and came back to England.
From that experience, it has made me stronger. That I am worthy, I am no doormat, I can be whoever I want to be.
In 2016, I was diagnosed with remitting-relapse Multiple Sclerosis. Ever since then, it has made me more determined to pursue my passions for singing and writing. It made me realise how life is short, and how you can't just let life pass you by, you have to follow your heart, your dreams, and your passions before its too late. And so more than ever I want to follow in my late grandmother's footsteps - my heart, and just sing my heart out.
My musical influences have varied over the years. When I was in my teens back in the late 90s, it was the Backstreet Boys, Jessica Simpson, and Christina Aguilera. Now that I am older, I can fully appreciate old-school musical legends such as Bill Withers, Otis Redding, Etta James, Nina Simone, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, and John Lennon. They were such real and soul singers, who sang with such soul passion and emotion.
