She was also part of the team that won the 2014 Global IACC Social Entrepreneurs Initiative with the development of an innovative freedom-of-information platform.
Living between the Caribbean, Europe, and the United Kingdom has enabled Yelena to develop a deep appreciation of different cultures and traditions and allowed her to work easily with diverse groups of people. As a result, Yelena is part of the Game-U International Team, whose initial goal is to expand enrollment opportunities overseas.
