Brief Biography of Almaci

Report of the Event

Belgian Groen Party Head Meyrem Almaci made an inspiring talk on her life story, how she made her journey to becoming the leader of a political party that garners an increasing share of support for its environmental and social policies at the 27th Breakfast Talk on March 21, 2015. Almaci said Belgians of Turkish origin are often encouraged to pursue vocational education and training, but she fought her way to graduating from a university. Perseverance and working hard have been the key elements for her success, she underlined. Almaci also noted that her family and the community she grew up in have been the driving force behind her rise to the position she has now. “As citizens of non-Belgian origin, we also have the responsibility of contributing to our country. My aim is to bring positive changes to the country and community I live in. I disagree with the idea ‘the duty of the opposition is to oppose.’ We all should make contributions and solution suggestions,” the Groen leader stated. For those who wish to pursue career in politics, Almaci suggested asking themselves the questions of ‘What do I want to change in the society?’ and ‘Which political party do I feel close to?’
