"I did my visiting at Cukurova University with the aim of carrying out data collection process of my doctoral research project which lasted for more than 7 months. My visiting position at Çukurova University empowered me in the field,, and became one of my prominent fieldwork strategies while introducing myself to potential respondents. More precisely, my affiliation with Cukurova University facilitated and accelerated my tasks in the field in terms of reaching to target population. Besides, , being a visiting researcher gave me a golden opportunity to collaborate with Asst. Prof. İlke Yüksel Şanlıer which in fact enabled me to broaden my horizon both theoretically and empirically throughout data collection of my PhD Project in Adana. Upon completion of my fieldwork in Adana, I also gave a seminar at the Department of Communications where I shared preliminary findings of the research and received insightful feedback from distinguished members of the department and colleagues. Last but not least, having the opportunity to spend seven months as a visiting researcher at Cukurova University gave me a chance to join academic groups working on migration studies, to get familiarize with distinguished faculty members, provide a challenging and stimulating academic environment for my fieldwork and to challenge myself working in a new research site."
