Hey all! I’m Gizem – a full-time software engineer based in San Francisco and part-time drummer after work as long as my neighbors don’t mind 🙂 Originally born and raised in Turkey, I moved to US when I was 18. I started playing the drums in late 2011, yet took a long break during college. Now that I’m done with school and have more free time in my hands I try to practice as often as possible.
Participating in HLAG last year for the first time was a blast, and this year is no different. I picked “Just A Girl” by No Doubt as my contest song as a reminder for us women to always feel empowered. Now let’s keep hitting it like a girl and rocking 🤘
