Let Me Introduce Myself!

I am blogging here since 01.01.19. Here is my blog in English. Normally I have more blogs in Turkish. I like blogging and I am keeping blogs for more than 10 years. In my English blog journey, I found great blogs and bloggers. As far as I have time, I am visiting them and I am commenting on their posts. Some of them visit me as a return also. I am thankful all of them!

I want to introduce myself to my foreign blog friends. My name is Recep Hilmi TUFAN. I am 31 years old and I am living with my own family. My wife is a kindergarten teacher. We have a 4,5 year-old son whose name is Kayra Eymen. He is the meaning of our life. He is going to the same school with his mother. 

Kayra Eymen

We are normally from Afyonkarahisar however we are living in Bursa for 4 years. I am working for a company which is importing chemical products from European countries. I am a regional sales responsible. I am always visiting our customers to increase our sales.

I studied Italian Language and Literature in Istanbul University between 2006 - 2010. After graduating, I worked for a company which is manufacturing FRP products from 2011 to 2014. I started my current job in June 2015. Between these two jobs I started my own work, I took a franchising from Realty World however I couldn't success on this job.

We had so many bad days however we overcame. While we were moving from Uşak to Bursa 4 years ago, our all appointments are burned. We lost all of our furnitures, white goods, clothes and the others which you have in your house. We sold our car and our house which is in Afyon to overcome the difficulites.

We are happy nowadays. The life is going on. We have a son who is giving us hope about the future. 

What about you? Are you happy? Could you introduce yourself to us?
