Real Fucking Girls: 2, as directed by @freemonawales won the 2018 @the.teashow Award for Best DVD! I was honoured to accept the award on behalf of all of the cast and crew! We are so joyous, and I am so grateful to have been a part of this production! #teas2018 #transgendereroticaawards #pornawards #transgender #transisbeautiful #pornstars
Her first award nominations were for the Best International Performer (West), and -the coveted- Ms. Unique titles. More fitting categories could not have been chosen, as Jelena combines art and passion to create experiences that can only be felt, not described. In 2018, Jelena had Five award nominations at the TEAs, in addition to her AVN nomination for Favourite Trans Performer.
Along with working with the largest companies in the industry like Evil Angel, Grooby Productions (Canada-TGirl, Grooby VR, Grooby Platinum, & Tgirls.Porn), TSNaturals, Transational Fantasies (Formerly Shemale Strokers), and Two TGirls, Jelena has been hard at work creating exciting and captivating self-produced content.
