Frequently Asked Questions

What is Seyopa? It’s your place where you can connect with like-minded people to discuss, learn, and share whatever you’re passionate about. It’s all about inspiring and empowering each other to engage in what we love.

Why did we create Seyopa? We wanted to create one place that is YOUR place to inspire and be inspired, to find and share content and personal experiences all about what you love with a community of like-minded people.

Who created Seyopa? Rachel Lebensohn. Check out her personal statement to hear it in her own words.

What is a Passion Group? It’s simply a community of like-minded people who share your passion. It could be a broad category like “Sports” or something more specific like “Racquetball.”

What if I don’t see something I’m interested in? We encourage you to create your own Passion Group! We’ve given you a bunch to choose from, and our community creates more all the time, so just join in and make it happen. We want you to have fun with this.

Engage with a group: Seyopa is a bunch of like-minded communities where you can share and discuss whatever you’re passionate about. The site is divided up into Passion Groups, and you can see the conversation by clicking the Passion Groups button in the menu on the top right of the site, by selecting a Passion Group from the sidebar on the right, by searching for a group in the search bar, or just click here.
