Mariana is a Peabody award-winning news personality, author and the co-founder of GoLike, a multimedia production company.  Mariana is all those things, but what she truly is above all else is a shining example to all of what can happen if you find your own voice and purpose. The award-winning reporter came to the United States after losing the hope of becoming a journalist in her home country of Venezuela. Suddenly, as an immigrant and the new girl on television, she was faced with a choice: be what everybody else expected or to re-define herself beyond labels. Her determination to break boundaries has seen her work as a news anchor and national correspondent on television for a decade in both English and Spanish, while her Tedx Talk titled ‘What Makes You Special?’ has been viewed almost 14 million times and translated into 13 languages. A Latino who is truly helping to define the next decade in America, she has keynoted at the United Nations Girl Up Summit, worked with Airbnb, UBS and Microsoft, while her first book ‘Perfectly You: Embracing the Power of Being Real’ was an Amazon best-seller and listed on Apple as a ‘Must Listen.’ If you are looking to inspire your team to break through the barriers to success and to find their voice, then it’s time to learn from experience with Mariana.
