ŞAHİNKAYA SPIRIT

During a sociology lecture, a university professor sent his students to the slums and asked them to do a case study on 200 young people living there. He asked his students to evaluate the future of these young people.

The students' comment was "They haven't got a chance". Five years later, another sociology professor came across the same work. The professor asked his students to find out what happened to these young people. The students found out that out of the 20 young people, who either moved somewhere else or died, 176 of the 180 them had achieved unconventional success by becoming doctors, lawyers and businesspeople. Quite surprised, the professor decided to go over the case. Luckily, all of the young people who had been studied lived in the neighborhood. The professor was asking the same question to all the young people that he could reach after the research.

"To what do you owe your success" The young people's response was the same. "To our teacher..."

The teacher was still alive. The professor finally found the teacher. She wanted to know what kind of a magic formula she used on this journey that led to the success of these young people from the slums. The teacher's eyes lighted up. A slight smile on her lips "It is very simple," she said. “I loved these kids.“ That is the Şahinkaya spirit.

We love you very much.
