In Search of Something New

Whether if it is discovering the narrow streets of Europe or trying something different for a change, Dileksiz is always in search of something new.

Ada Dileksiz is an education abroad student at the UCSB who is majoring in political science. Dileksiz is studying for a liberal arts degree in her home university, King’s College London, but she wanted to experience the American education before graduating next year. So, Dileksiz left the rainy lands of London for the sunny skies of Santa Barbara. Having scuba-diver parents and experience of swimming competitively, Dileksiz really enjoys watersports as she hopes to practice her sailing skills in the Santa Barbara harbor. As Dileksiz grew up in Istanbul, with the view of Bosphorus, being close to water calms her down. So far, Dileksiz lived in three different cities, Istanbul, London and Santa Barbara, and she visited a variety of countries from minimalist Scandinavia to the hidden gems of Middle East. As a true liberal arts student, Dileksiz has produced different type of media content in the past such as blogging about fashion, reporting on sports content for KingsTV and interviewing musicians for the Roundhouse blog. The next thing on her creative content checklist is writing political satires. Although Dileksiz has not decided on her next step after graduation, she truly believes that working in media industry would make her happy.
