The 'Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World (TOYP)' program is organised annually by Junior Chamber International (JCI), which is a non-profit international organization of young people between 18–40 years old. The TOYP program honours young people (under 40) who excel in their respective fields, turn challenges into opportunities and illustrate the best attributes of the world's young people. There are 10 categories and nominations are made first on a local and then on a global level. Hatice Zora has been selected as the recipient of the 'Academic Leadership' award in TOYP Turkey.
Hatice Zora says: "I am humbled by this honour and grateful for the recognition of my work and commitment. It was a memorable day for me and my family."
