My name is Leyla and I work in Public Relations at Quixtar doing things like writing news releases, emailing editors and (this is my favorite part of my job) coordinating our corporate philanthropy program. I am the One by One Campaign for Children person at Quixtar.
I’m a Turkish, German, Irish, middle-aged (I can hardly believe it myself!), curious, Democrat, Spartan (Go Green!), kind, opinionated, curious, silly, giving, American woman…
…My dad is big on Turkish sayings. He once said, “When I say cucumber, you run like salt!”
OK, I didn’t know what that meant either, but apparently, he was commenting on my habit of volunteering for the latest, greatest cause. I used to say that I have this spring mechanism in my arm that would automatically trigger upon hearing the phrase “…we really need some help…” especially when it comes to kids. I LOVE kids, and old people, and animals, and…the list goes on and on. How fortunate for me that I ended up in a job that allows me to focus on helping kids. 🙂 Yea!
Welcome to Leyla at the new Quixtar One By One blog!
This is the newest addition to Quixtar’s Opportunity Zone domain; which is promising to be home to all of Quixtar’s related blogs.
Leyla’s blog reads with a tone of “realness” and sincerity. So far, so good.
Stop by and tell her “Howdy”.
