In our new weekly serial, #TogetherTuesday, we’re connecting with our people, checking in on them, and bringing the Abdul Latif Jameel family together.

This week, we meet Utku Uzun, Financial Product Advisor at ALJ Finansman A.Ş.:

“Staying home, and staying safe, has given me a chance to pause, to slow down a little, and focus on things I’ve never found time to do.

I’ve organised my balcony garden and started growing fresh herbs – which I’m using every night to cook dinner for my family.

It’s made me realise how much I enjoy cooking and that, the next time I’m able to meet up with friends, I’m going to prepare a freshly cooked dinner at home, introduce them to my family, turn the television off and just . . . talk.”
