ALENA PUZACH

As an actress, a chef, and member of the Screen Actors Guild, I came up with the unique idea of creating the first Belarusian-speaking (As far as I know) food channel on YouTube around seven years ago, just before my move to the United States.

I aim to delve into the roots of Belarusian cuisine with a unique idea – exploring the food of my ancestors and the recipes they prepared to better understand ourselves as a nation. Through my YouTube cooking videos, I bring Belarusian history to life.

As our lives increasingly move online and vital information becomes accessible digitally, and cybersecurity has become a crucial area of growth.
