After she graduated fom Bilkent University; in 2002 she moved to Istanbul and started to seek her carreer in which she always dreamed to be..."a song-writer and a singer". For a short time she studied with Randy Esen and joined gigs; sang in several events. She worked for the TV and production companies when she realised that she would only like to breath and live for music; thus gave everything up and started to work on her own and for her own music. In 2004 she joined the group "Funkalaturca" as the group's vocalist where they performed shows for special events.
