Belfu Berkol

Hello there! 

I'm  Belfu Berkol.

     I was born in 2006. I graduated from Sev Primary and Secondary School. I am a sophomore student at Saint - Joseph French High School. Throughout my education life, I took part in various clubs such as photography, Spanish, sculpture, drama, Japanese, DL (Destination Imagination), JMUN, (Junior Model United Nations). I was the head of the school in the 8th grade. I took part in the IGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) club and the team's lab team in high school. I am the first Turkish and youngest member of WISTEM  (Women in STEM), one of the after IGEM initiatives. 

 

     Besides my school I am interested in theatre, tennis and volleyball. I speak English, French and Spanish. I am the founder of ''Student Volunteering Movement '' called İhtiyaç Kutum. In the 7th grade, Prof. I was only member of a newly opened club called Sev. I developed a bioplastic in this club 

 

This adventure, which started as just a project back then, was actally the first steps of bioDIF.
