The art competition winner, Vipassana Dhakal talking about her imagination and inspiration on winning painting said, “First of all, I needed some peaceful environment to think and brainstorm. So, I read the topic which is ‘Flying with Turkish Airlines: Dream Destination’ multiple times. I thought Turkey is a beautiful place as well as my dream destination and I have never been to Turkey. So, that’s how it came to my mind and I just painted this beautiful country, Turkey.” She even said that she’s been to many countries like Thailand, United Kingdom and Vietnam but this will be her very first flight experience with Turkish Airlines and she’s very excited about this trip.
