Ali was born and raised in Turkey until the age of 17, then decided to continue his education in The United States where he could experience his freewill without worrying. When he was 16, he was elected as one of the most successful out of a thousand Turkish students in a nation -wide certification. In high school, he spent my spare time with elementary school students as their mentor where stressed the importance of helping others and emphasized universal human values. When he got into college, he did the same thing for high school students. He is currently double majoring at Northern Virginia Community College, in the Spring will be graduating with an AS in Computer Science and an AS in Electrical Engineering. Ali feels so dignified to be elected for ODI as a NOVA representative and wants to express his special gratitude to Dolly Wolf and Pace University for supporting and hosting this fascinating event.
