About the Author
Adriana worked for RCN, CM& and HORA CERO popular media broadcast firms with wide coverage throughout Latin America. In 2003 she published a best-selling book titled La Guaca de las FARC (English translation: 'FARC's Stash: I Found It') published by Quintero Editores. The book provides a chronicle of a real story about a group of soldiers conducting a routine military operation in the jungle while being extremely careful for land mines, stumbled upon millions of dollars stashed in barrels. They decided to run away with the treasure. Unfortunately, the monies belonged to a terrorist group and so the story unfolds.
In 2003 the Congress of Colombia honored Adriana with a proclamation exalting her job as a war reporter. In 2004 Adriana was in danger after receiving several death threats against her and her family from the toughest FARC leaders. As a consequence, and for the safety of her family, she fled after securing a new opportunity to work for the Colombian Consulate in New York City, NY. In 2010 the Council of New York honored her with a proclamation for her support in the field of Art and Culture. In 2014 El Diario La Prensa in New York awarded her as part of their 'Outstanding Women" program for her efforts in the field of art and culture. Currently Adriana is contributor/writer for The Huffington Post and Thrive Global. At the same time, she is a Principal at Concise Marketing & Communications. Adriana is a often called upon as a keynote speaker and from 2002 is a member of RESDAL the Latin American Security and Defense Network.
