Mariana Atencio first came to my attention during NBC’s coverage of the devastating earthquake that rocked Mexico in September 2017. I was surprised at how quickly she was able to interview victims in Spanish and then, live on-air, flawlessly translate to the television audience in English. She even does this in her first book, Perfectly You, narrated by Mariana herself in both English and Spanish. Throughout her story, Atencio focuses on the power of being yourself and embracing your Latinidad. The Venezuela native also details how she was able to make the transition to English-language media, getting over insecurities about both her accent and her sense of belonging. Mariana Atencio is a fearless reporter who knows the only way to get to the heart of the story is to be a part of it.
