'Sil Akgun
Resident:Istanbul, Turkey
Photographer:Meryem Ke?o?lu
Isil was born in Istanbul in 1987. She is a senior in a German high school and has plans of becoming an architect. We met in fourth grade and became close friends. Our friendship survived through many obstacles. Those were the things that made me see that she is going to be the one next to me, whenever I need. Most of the time I did not ask for it but she was ready to help. Through these years she becomes a friend, with whom I will always feel at ease and with whom I make plans of future without fear. Life is less complicated when you know that there is someone, who will understand the whole sentence before you finish a word. Sometimes it is hard to ask the right question and knowing that someone is going to be there to give the right answer before you ask makes it a lot more easier. Isil is that someone for me.
