Turkan Bozkurt

Greetings! I was born in Urmu and raised in Toronto. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Toronto by double majoring in criminology and middle eastern studies and minoring in philosophy. I completed my master’s degree with the middle eastern department at the same university. My research and thesis was based on Azerbaijan from an intersectional feminism perspective. I’ve also obtained a paralegal degree in Ontario, allowing me to work in the legal world. Legal philosophy is my food for thought.
