Ozkan, who swims for the Fenerbahce Sports Club (Istanbul) and the Turkish Swimming Federation has stood out in multiple national and international competitions. At the 2018 LEN European Junior Championships, she earned a bronze medal in the 50m fly and she placed 8th in the 100m fly. Her 50 fly was fast enough to make her the current Turkish record-holder in the event. In 2017 she was a semi-finalist at the World Junior Championships in the 50 and 100 fly.
