Elena is a great scientist. She learned English when she arrived in the US as a teenager. You will love all the amazing work she does with DNA tests.

    She shows that you don't have to find your path in life too early. Elena wanted to be a scientist when she was in college. This video is very inspirational!

    I have seen on TV (Forensic Files) something about amplification of DNA but I did not understand the process. Finally Elena in this interview explains what it is and why its done. I want to be a forensic investigator with a solid scientific base like Elena. "

    Elena you are a great example for me! I cannot believe you didnt speak English until you were 18 years old and you became a phenomenal scientist and professional. I too have some difficulties with English but I hope to be able to make it as you did!"
