Prior to this, Yana had a 10 year career in broadcast journalism, and has been able to advise women's organisations on such topics as the development of behavioural change campaigns and media relations.
She has also carried out various research projects for governmental organisations into such areas as health care access for black and minority ethnicity communities, and education and training policies for diverse communities.
Yana is also a freelance writer on women's issues, travel and food culture.
The blog Cake Hour features her musings as she travels around the world helping to empower women, shares stories of strong sisterhood, and women's rights insights.
