Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, has started a series of political, economic, and cultural reforms, seeking to transform the former Ottoman Empire into a modern, westernized and secular nation-state. The principles of Atatürk's reforms, upon which modern Turkey was established, are referred to as Kemalism.

Here are some of his important transformations:

- Secularism
- Legal equality between sexes
- Unification in education
- Introduction of Turkish alphabet based on latin characters
- and much more...

We are still trying to keep his way alive...
