My name is Mina Berra Bayraktar. I am 16 years old. Currently, I am a junior at Green Level High School. I was born in Lansing, Michigan. When I was four years old, my family and I moved to my home country, Turkey. After living nine years in Turkey, we moved back to the United States 3 years ago. My hobbies include practicing archery, playing volleyball, doing puzzles, and spending time with my family and friends. I am playing JVB volleyball for my high school and love all kinds of sports. Even as a young woman, I have big dreams, and I am already working towards them to make them a reality. My short-term goal is to be successful in my high school career and go to Yale University. I have visited Yale's authentic campus and fell in love! My long-term goal is to become a successful surgeon and inspire other girls. I know I have to work hard to achieve my goals. This webpage is an opportunity for me to share this exciting, challenging, and fun journey with you!
