Silvia is one of the few Peruvian Chinese immigrants working on the education problem in the United States. Because of her work with underserved youth in Los Angeles and experience with public schools in Peru, she has realized how similar both the American and Peruvian education systems are. She has spent the last year using her expertise in marketing to tackle the education problem in America.
Silvia is a social media expert, storyteller, and viral marketer who has created marketing campaigns that have reached millions of people organically. She is the social media specialist at the XQ Institute, a national nonprofit committed to rethink American high schools, create new learning opportunities for young people and open up the possibilities of the wider world.
Silvia joined the XQ Institute to combine powerful storytelling, social media, and design thinking to make education more accessible to every single person in this country.
Prior to XQ, Silvia was a content marketer at Startup Grind, the largest independent startup publication in the world inspiring and connecting 1,000,000 entrepreneurs. She led and grew the largest Medium publication about technology from zero to now 250,000+ readers. The publication includes writers like a technologist, venture capitalist, and New York Times bestseller Steve Blank and Twitter’s co-founder Biz Stone.
Silvia has been featured on Forbes, HuffPo, CBS, NBC, ABC, etc.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
