Silvia Romero Solís

I was born in Mexico and lived there until I was 15. My family and I moved to Laredo, Texas where I attended college at Texas A&M International University. After that, I moved around and have had the opportunity to live, work and study in a few different places, both in the U.S. and abroad. My background is in communications and I earned a graduate degree in cultural studies from New York University. I have worked as a journalist and writer for written publications, as a news reporter for Univision, as a coordinator for a communications strategy firm, a teacher for English-learners in Mexico City and in Spain, and I currently serve as a board member for Intercambio.

I try to bring a mindset of equity to the work that I do, it is something that is deeply important to me.

Nací en el Estado de México donde viví hasta los 15 años. Mi familia y yo nos mudamos a Laredo, Texas donde fui a la universidad, Texas A&M International University. Después, tuve la oportunidad de vivir y trabajar en varios lugares en E.E.U.U y en el extranjero. Tengo experiencia en comunicaciones y una maestría en cultura y medios de comunicación de la Universidad de Nueva York, o NYU. He trabajado como periodista y escritora para varias publicaciones, como reportera en Univision, coordinadora bilingüe para una firma de estrategia en comunicaciones, maestra de inglés como segundo lenguaje en México y España, y actualmente soy miembro del consejo directivo de Intercambio.

Busco traer un lente de equidad al trabajo que hago, esto es sumamente importante para mi.
