Gülşah Yağmur Yazıcı who hails from the Turkish north west city of Kocaeli,  received a touching phone call from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in early December after she shared a charcoal drawing of the president in a tweet that said, "This is all a disabled person is capable of. I hope my president will see my picture too. I love you very much." Yazıcı also mentioned Erdoğan's official account, where the president replied, "Thank you very much dear Gülşah. I praise your effort. I would like to host a daughter of ours with such a beautiful heart at the Presidential Complex."

Fast forward to January and the Turkish President granted the young woman's dream come true when he received her at the Presidential complex on Monday.

The picture that the talented young woman drew was presented to the President who was doing the now famous "Rabaa" gesture that symbolizes injustice at the United Nations where five powers have the main say in global matters.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency earlier, Yazıcı's mother said her daughter is very happy and proud to be speaking to President Erdoğan. "Gülşah decided to draw the picture of our president in two to three days. The day when we were called, she shared it on Twitter after drawing it in a couple of hours. She woke us up all of a sudden when we were sleeping," Yazıcı said.

She also said Yazıcı was not able to walk until she was 5 years old, and she started going to school at the age of 12 after a long period of treatment.
