Mariana Silva
Mariana recently graduated from Kent State University with a Bachelor's in news and concentration in magazines. She moved to Ohio in 2006 with her family when her father was relocated from Sao Paulo, Brazil to Akron. It is still not easy for her to deal with the snow every winter season, but Mariana enjoys Ohio and she has a special place for the City of Kent. 
She attended Kent State at Stark and Kent State Main, where she developed a passion for local journalism. At Kent State, Mariana learned the essence of community journalism and how what we sometimes see as "just local news" are important to the national scenario. When she is not at Kent, Mariana likes to go to the movies, read, watch CSI marathons and play with her cat Olivia.  Mariana is excited about writing for Patch, which is her first job as a reporter after graduation. She hopes she can keep working as a reporter for a long time, and serve as many communities as she can with good and relevant local news.
