Nil has practiced capoeira in Istanbul for several years. After working in the field of migration and volunteering for different causes, she posed to herself the goal to bridge her passion for capoeira with her skills in working with vulnerable groups. She started developing programs that address specific needs for displaced children and then women. It is only in 2015 that she discovered a whole world of activists and social workers dedicating all their time to this very field. This is how she felt inspired to import this idea to Turkey. Nil studied Turcologia and Hausa at INALCO, language didactics at Rouen University, and cultural management at Bilgi University. She works in BoMoVu as an initiator, a project developer and network builder.
