It is very nice to reunite with you
Answering questions from the young players, VakıfBank Captain said, ''It is very nice to come together with you. I know many of you, there are so many players I meet in the gym. We shouldn't all leave the house. You, on the other hand, have to stay at home compulsory. It's a very difficult time for all of us. But with such occasions, you are doing something very beautiful. By staying together, we will survive this difficult time. We are a very big family and I think you feel this too.''

Melis Gürkaynak, says that it’s an honour to play in the Youth Team of VakifBank, ''I also grew up from VakifBank’s Youth Team like you.  In 2011 I took part in Turkey's first CEV Champions League champion team.  I have been wearing VakıfBank’s jersey for 20 years.  You can always talk to us.  You can ask us questions whenever you want.  The more time you spend with us, it will be better for you. Because the sense of belonging, develops your volleyball character.  Being a family requires this.  If you are good, if you work hard, you will be sure get somewhere.  You just keep working.  You also need to take care of your lessons in the same way.  We all had anxiety, but we just worked and focused on success.  You should focus only on your work.''
