You forgot the personal ending. You must include the -sun here because "sen" is the subject :)

Good observation. It most certainly is, and there are many more loanwords form French to be found in Turkish!

Turkish is more open for gender equality. So he/she/it can be referred to with a single O. No nouns are gender specific in Turkish.

"You are a waiter." Translation: Sen bir garsonsun. Another correct answer. Because "a" was in the English question.
