Most rewarding role: Maggie Hobson in Hobson’s Choice was a very special one. The process of exploring the character in order to become someone else and carrying the story throughout the entire ballet made it an extremely rewarding role to perform.

Other companies: Soloist with Turkish State Opera and Ballet (2012 - 2015).

Guest performances: La Fille mal gardée and The Sleeping Beauty pas de deux with Etoile Ballet Gala in Riga, Latvia.
