Meet the Team

Name: Yelena Sidorko
Location: Seattle
Role: Blogger Intern
Insider Information: Yelena is finishing her last year at the University of Washington, where she is getting a degree in European Studies. She is interested in international relations, and hopes to do a lot of traveling some day.
Why I'm Part of it: "I believe that we, as one of the most powerful countries in the world, are truly capable of making a difference in the fight against global poverty. We need to realize the impact we have as individuals, and take action rather than just sit back and feel sorry for the people we read about in the headlines. I believe that the Borgen Project is encouraging people to do just that; informing them of the issues and how they can take practical steps towards influencing our legislators."
