Recommendation from Oben’s journalism instructor at Columbia College Chicago, Nancy Traver:

“Sylvia and I worked together for two years in my capacity as writing coach while at Columbia College, where she was earning her master’s degree in journalism. She is dedicated, hardworking, very dependable and very committed. Her news judgment is excellent. She is a good reporter and writer, and, of course, it is a great plus that she is fluent in English and Spanish. Also, Sylvia works well with others and is a team player. I’m sure she would be a very positive addition in any newsroom or organization. “
