I passed the necessary exams for tram driver. Then I started this business. I was a steering instructor before. I was teaching ladies to drive. Using a tram is easier than driving a car. I am honored, proud and happy to be a veteran, it's a nice profession. Most importantly, you are carrying people's lives, I feel responsible. It doesn't matter if you are a man or a woman while doing this job. As a female driver, I can do everything a male driver can do. Ladies should not be afraid of anything. They can do anything whenever they want. I am making a career, doing my job and looking after my child. "

“I do not have the luxury of looking in the mirror while using the tram. I look back in the rear view mirror from the side, but I use the vehicle's speedometer at the stops to look at myself. I continue on my way by looking at my image reflected there and correcting my makeup. I also love to read books. I have a book that I never let go of, I read it during breaks. One day I came to SSK Stop and it was 3 minutes before departure. I am in a very exciting place in the book. A passenger knocked on the window. I opened the door, an old aunt said 'what are you doing my daughter'. I said 'I am reading a book'. He said, 'You read a book even for a little break, I want to give you a bookmark that I made myself and earned money from it. Please don't stop reading the book, 'he said. I will never forget this gift. I never miss reading a book and when I see that aunt on the road, I wave to her. "
