Community Highlights: Meet Hasan Altuntas of California Language Academy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hasan Altuntas.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I grew up as part of a gregarious family in Giresun, Turkey. I had some difficulties to reach the good education that I deserved. During my journey, there were a couple of educators touched my life and changed my direction of my life. That’s why I decided to become an educator and entrepreneur. I have a passionate and hard-working skills that can help me to reach my goals. Since 13 years, I have been touched and uplifted a lot of young people’s lives to become a global citizen. I have Bachelor’s Degree on International Relations and had a master degrees on Entrepreneurship Program and Global Affairs Program now, I m on the journey to complete my PHD in Higher Education Management at Walden University.

I believe that Education is the most valuable thing that everyone has to have. I started as an Education Counselor in Turkey and later on, I have improved a lot with my skills and knowledge to be more successful. I had a lot of executive roles in different education institutions and last three years, I’m so happy to manage my own school and follow my own dreams. California Language Academy is on the right truck to be one of the biggest education pillars in USA and in the world. That’s why we are working so hard with our team to make this happen.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It was not easy to establish your brand at the beginning. A lot of people around me showed me how you can fail, how you can’t… But I believed into my self and I would like to take the risk. As I mentioned, number one difficulty is not finding right people around you who can believe you. But I did.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about California Language Academy?

Can you share something surprising about yourself?
I never forgot where I came from. I never have a vocation in my life, when I was in college, I worked every summer for a seasonal job or did a volunteering for homeless or orphans. I usually do not share this type of my personality with the people. I always wanted to be a social person who is contributing to society where I based.
