About me

My name is Aida. I am a cheerful 21-year-old born in the only heart shaped country in the world, now living and studying in capital of Turkey. I’m a full time student at Ankara University - Faculty of Communications. Sister to the world’s cutest little 7-year-old. I LOVE photography, good books, music, fashion, chocolate and him.
