Blueeyequeen or “Blue”, is a passionate disability advocate, using her voice to speak up for those who may not be able to.

"Greetings, I'm Blueeyequeen, also known as Blue, BEQ, or Queen. I've been a part of our Operations team since last January, and being in a startup feels like a whirlwind adventure every day.

⚒️ How has your disability influenced your career path?
"For privacy reasons, I maintain anonymity on many platforms to avoid any unfair treatment based on my identity. Working in web3 offers me a unique opportunity to have a voice and create an identity while remaining anonymous. At Yuga, my physical disability does not serve as a barrier because my passion and determination fuel my work, and this mindset resonates throughout the company."
💻 What does your remote office look like?
"My remote space looks like a new place each time I open the laptop. I am inspired by my surroundings, and I make an effort to see something new with my eyes every day! Life is short - live the journey with intention."
