In 2015 Yulia became the silver prizewinner of World Championship in Spain and continues to improve her skills. She also has referee category D and may perform as a referee at the championships.

I am the only girl in the team, and people told me that nothing will come out of it. If I would listen to them Id abandon my career long time ago, but I hasnt given up, I went for the black belt, titles and victory. My coach and my teams belief in me helped a lot, and I want to tell everyone: do not lose faith in yourself, said Yulia.
