Adriana Aristizabal, a former TV war correspondent from Colombia, has taken a journey from covering the storm of war to becoming a trailblazer in the field of public relations.
After facing death threats from a former terrorist group, Adriana was forced to leave her home country and start a new life as an immigrant in the United States. But Adriana didn’t let adversity define her; instead, she used her experience and passion for storytelling to create iVoice Communications, a global PR agency in New York City.
Adriana first got interested in journalism as a way to bring attention to important social and political issues. During her time as a war correspondent, Adriana witnessed firsthand the power of media to shape public opinion and drive change. However, she realized that there was a gap in the media landscape, and that traditional news outlets were not always able to effectively tell the stories of the people she encountered.
This realization inspired Adriana to turn her attention to the field of public relations, where she saw an opportunity to help organizations and individuals tell their stories and shape their own narratives. With years of experience in journalism and a passion for storytelling, Adriana founded iVoice Communications in 2014.
Today, iVoice Communications is a leader in the PR industry, providing clients with customized PR strategies that are tailored to their unique needs and goals. Adriana’s team of experts leverages cutting-edge technology and data analysis to provide clients with a competitive edge, and to help them effectively communicate with their target audiences.
Adriana’s journey from war correspondent to entrepreneur is an inspiration to others who face adversity and seek to reinvent themselves. Despite the challenges she faced as an immigrant, Adriana has made a significant impact in her adopted country, serving as the former Consul of Colombia in New York City and authoring two books, “Caught in the Storm of War” and “La Guaca de las FARC.”
In conclusion, Adriana Aristizabal’s story is a testament to the power of resilience and determination. Her unwavering commitment to shaping the narrative and telling important stories has made iVoice Communications a leader in the PR industry and a valuable partner for clients around the world.
For the past six years, Adriana has worked with clients to successfully penetrate and attract the global Hispanic Market via creative marketing and public relations solutions that maximize visibility and brand awareness via unique media, marketing, and communication strategies.
