Melis Abacıoğlu’s passion in life is helping people become physically active. Once afraid to embrace her own ambition and drive, she learned to challenge this perspective through team sports. On and off the soccer field, her work with Actifit and Kizlar Sahada is changing outlooks on gender, empowering individuals, and inspiring women to support one another.
Melis Abacıoğlu is the founder of the non-profit sports organization Hareket Candır, the corporate wellness firm Actifit and the women’s soccer movement Kızlar Sahada.
