First woman

"But she admits the chance to be the first woman in Turkey to be in charge of building a mosque was the opportunity of a lifetime. "When I was offered this project I cried," Ms Fadillioglu said. The mosque was commissioned by a wealthy Arab Turkish family, as a memorial to their mother "I think what is exciting is that I am a woman," she said." (thanks Zeina)
