Home town: Istanbul, Turkey
Favorite thing about Pittsburgh: "The sports stadiums are huge."
Semih came to RMU as an exchange student from Bahçesehir University, studying media arts. He liked RMU's suburban campus, which is much more pastoral than what he is used to in busy Istanbul. "I saw deer here, so it's very different," he says.
Besides playing soccer, Semih enjoys making short films. He worked in radio for several years and has dubbed documentaries and commercials into Turkish.
