And they say blondes have more fun...
Pelin Derya Cetinkaya (24) graduated from the mathematics
faculty of Akdeniz University, Antalya, in 2012. Next,
Cetinkaya took pedagogy training at Adnan Menderes
University in Aydin. In 2013, she went to the test center
for the KPSS (sort of a federal employee entrance exam)
examination and had her picture taken with her hair blonde.
Subsequently, Cetinkaya changed her hair color back to
its natural dark shade and had her national ID card picture
taken with this hair. On 5 July, Cetinkaya went to the KPSS
test site at Danisment Gazi Anadolu High School in Adana
but was taken into custody by test observers who saw that
her test photo and ID photo did not match. Cetinkaya was
suspected of trying to take the test for someone else and
given over to the police.
At the police station Cetinkaya was interrogated and her ID
card was seized but she was eventually released. However,
because she didn't have her ID card, Cetinkaya was unable
to sit for the teachers exam in the afternoon and 13 months
of preparation went for naught.
