She is currently serving both for the local and international board of YPT. She works as the Vice Chair for Programs- Sf Bay Area Chapter and as the Director of Programs for the International Board. She was referred to YPT by her former colleague at Spin Electric Scooters. She wholeheartedly believes that transportation is a great enabler and everybody should have access to equitable, accessible, safe and sustainable transportation. She would like to contribute to this vision through her important roles at YPT.

Sebnem likes traveling to exotic places, playing with clay and practicing yoga and meditation. Her favorite transportation modes are subways and trains, while her least transportation mode is driving.
