A love for being in front of the camera and public speaking has lead Derin's dream of working as a presenter from a young age. A believer in following your dreams and passions, she has already started this journey by setting up her own YouTube channel, co-hosting a web-series for BBC Bitesize and presenting films for the British Council.
Derin has a 'work hard, play hard' ethos, and when off-camera she can be found at Brands Hatch with her father, she even celebrated her 13th birthday at the legendary British circuit. Derin is a strong supporter of climate change and believes she embodies Formula E’s #PositvelyCharged mantra.
“It can be so easy to get caught up in other people’s opinions or expectations of what you should and shouldn’t do, however I think staying in your lane, remaining focused and listening to what that voice inside of your head is telling you, is what’s most important to truly be happy.”
