Asiye Aslı Aslaner – Writer and Teacher
Asiye Aslı Aslaner was born in Ankara as the only child of a family of educators. The money she spent to buy books during her school years, even with little money, was enough to nurture her interest in writing. She wrote her first articles in the third grade and prepared a short theater script for her classmates. The essay she wrote was published in a contest in which she won the first prize, along with another essay she wrote on LOVE in her middle school years.
