When Gökden İpek Yosunlu went on a casual walk with her mother in her hometown of Mersin, Turkey, she never imagined she was about to stumble on an idea that would bring achievement, satisfaction and economic empowerment to dozens of rural women across the country. Here she talks about the attitude that led her on this journey, the wonderful people she has met, and why it is so important to always be open to the next opportunity.
Gökden İpek Yosunlu founded “My Mother’s Rug” to empower low-income, rural women in Turkey. She is an Ashoka ChangemakerXChange participant and a Youth Action Net Global Fellow. Yosunlu majored in Law and International Relations at Bilgi University.
