Elena Gant, a native of Russia, is a television and social media star. She and her husband, Preston Gant, have two children, Kairo and Xavier. The couple met when she came to the United States in 2011 to attend Little People of America convention.
Gant overcame the challenges of being told to limit her dreams, from being turned down as a receptionist because of the way she looked to finding her success on television and social media.
As a mother, she knows how important it is to encourage your children, letting them know they can be whatever they want to be when they grow up. She has written a children’s book teaching children that it is okay to be different. Elena’s characters show kids that it does not matter if they are a girl or a boy, little or big, they can be anything they want!
