The Women Inspiring Europe 2011 Calendar features Ms. Seyran Ates in the month of March.
Seyran Ates’ most impressive experience occurred when a young man approached her on the street as she stepped out of one of her favourite restaurants, a popular contemporary Turkish joint in Berlin, her hometown. She had just finished lunch with her brother, one of the rare occasions where the two had found the time to just sit and talk. The young man walked straight towards her and stopped close in front of her, towering over her 160-centimeter figure. He was broad with impressive shoulders and big, muscular arms. “Thank you”, he said simply. “Thank you for what you have done for us.”
