I was so proud of myself on Sunday since I succeeded in skiing, which has always looked like the scariest sports activity to me. It was on one of the top lines of my ‘impossible to do’ list.
When I was a kid we went to a skiing resort in Turkey. I was the most shameful person of my family – I was basically hopeless. Even on the lightest slopes, I was simply screaming and falling down immediately. The worst part was that I was hardly able to get up without someone lifting me. I was so ashamed. I hated skiing so much that I have never imagined it would be possible for me to try it again.
