"I completed four courses. I am 74 years old. I joined these courses to learn what I did not get the chance to learn in my youth. I was successful despite my old age. I made this work on my neck, and I have many works like this. I would like to thank Turkey and the team that were together and worked with us on this project. I participate in the needlework course for this period, and in the last period, I participated in the wood decoration course. "
