2. Educational Background
Turan completed her high school in Sinop. Later she studied film at the Department of Radio, TV, and Cinema, Faculty of Communication in Istanbul University.
Actually, acting was not my dream. I had a music-oriented childhood. On the other hand, while watching the movies, I was wondering how they were filmed. This curiosity led me to read cinema and television afterward. I graduated from cinema and television and now I am studying at the ‘Department of Law & Justice’ as a second university. Until university, I was one of the successful students who finished high school in third place, entered college in fourth place, now I’m back to the same old student mode to finish it.Ayça Ayşin Turan
