Silvia, also known as VIA™, is a renaissance woman of the arts. Besides her artistic talents, she has modeled her whole life and appeared in music videos as well as independent films. She has interviewed many celebrities such as Slim, the Grammy award winner from the R&B group 112, the former New England Patriot and now ESPN analyst, Teddy Brushci and many other professional athletes.

As a result of her efforts, she has appeared on many television programs including, ABC's local Boston affiliate's long running series, Urban Update on WCVB, Global Grinda, an online news company owned by Russell Simmons who is a Forbes-listed pioneer of the music industry.
VIA has been interviewed by many cable networks and has been a guest speaker at several colleges & shelters across America. Although she continues to advocate & educate on behalf of others who have been victims of domestic violence, Via retired as a full time advocate so she could pursue other career interests.
