Legal and Ethics Coordinator
While studying at the Istanbul University Faculty of Communication, Hande began her journalism journey in 2014. Working for numerous national and international news websites and newspapers, she gained experience as a reporter. She continued her education in Budapest with the Erasmus+ project in 2018 and graduated in 2019 from the Department of Journalism with honors. She currently works for an international news agency as a Satellite Desk Coordinator. The next step for Hande is to get a masters degree in Media and Culture and apply what she’s going to learn in her career in journalism.
Hande, who began volunteering the same year in Istanbul&I, was previously a member of the Programming Committee. With her strong involvement in event planning and her engagement in Istanbul&I projects last year, she became one of the 2020 superstar volunteers. Now, she is the Ethics Coordinator and is responsible all of Istanbul&I’s legal matters. She also runs the Ethics Council and ensures that the Executive Board is following the Istanbul&I Charter.
