New York Rose: Elena Evangelou

New York Rose: Elena Evangelou



Hello! My name is Elena Evangelou and I was born and raised in Queens NY, just outside of the “City That Never Sleeps”. My mother was born and raised in Pallaskenry (Co. Limerick), and my father was born in the Republic of Cyprus. I am 22 years old, and just graduated from SUNY Cortland with a degree in Business Economics with a minor in Human Resources.

During my time at SUNY Cortland, I was a sister of the Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority. I was able to experience a sense of sisterhood that I never knew existed, and a bond of loyalty, strength, laughter, and love that will last a lifetime. I currently intern for the HR department of WES Inc, and I would love to eventually pursue a career specializing in this field. I enjoy meeting new people and learning from others, so working in HR is really a great experience.

In my spare time I love to travel, listen to music, get a good work-out session in, and spend time with my friends. I am a very compassionate, outgoing, and loyal individual. I am excited to be representing NY in the 2019 Rose of Tralee Festival, and I am excited for the amazing year ahead!
