Some of Silvana’s accomplishments include; organizing a Town of Hempstead Latino Pride Day in 2004, winning a beauty pageant, putting together a very successful Hispanic networking event for Noticia in 2005 and co-founded in 2011 a networking and social group called the Long Island Young Latino Professionals.
