Simay Okyay was initiated at Zeta Beta Chapter at The University of Virginia in 2011. She joined Gamma Phi because she felt the sorority is made up of diverse, genuine and driven women who empower one another. She currently serves as the Collegiate Chapter Supervisor for Region 2 on the International level, and is the Philanthropy chairwoman for the Fairfax County Alumnae Chapter. Simay is also an Associate Board Member for Girls on the Run NOVA where she has served since graduating college. Outside of Gamma Phi Beta, she is a board member of The University of Virginia Club of Washington DC (DC Hooes), which is the official UVA alumni club in the DC area. Professionally, Simay works in health policy consulting and is currently a Master of Public Health candidate at George Washington University. In her spare time, she enjoys taking dance lessons and travelling. Gamma Phi Beta means so much to Simay, and she says it best herself- “Gamma Phi Beta means empowering young women to find and use their voice by providing a safe space where they have the opportunities to become who they will be as young adults in their professional and personal lives after graduation. Gamma Phi Beta also means a lifelong support system of sisters whom you know and love and of sisters across the country who you never would have known otherwise. Gamma Phi Beta means opportunity; we do not say "not four years but for life" without reason!” We are excited to have Simay as a member of our chapter. She is such a happy person who exudes confidence and grace. Simay, thank you for volunteering your time and talent to our beloved sorority!
