Evelyn D’Agostino is the Founder & Treasurer of Grupo Cultural Latinos En Rochester. She was born in Panama in the town of Arraiján. In 2006 Evelyn brought her drive and Passion to Western New York.
A graduate of the Catholic University Santa Maria La Antigua of Panama; Evelyn serves as one of the Xerox Corporation International Logistics Analysts for Latin America and the Caribbean. Currently, she is a board member of HAPA (Hispanic association for professional advancement) at Xerox in the Rochester Chapter.
She has held many board positions with well-established and accomplished organizations such as UNICEF as a member of the Advisory Board, Amnesty International, Rochester La Voz News Paper, and The Memorial Art Gallery Latino and Hispanic Family Day Planning Committee. Ms. D’Agostino is a proud mother of two children, a wife, and she is often seen as a mentor to others. Her dedication to the organizations she serves has not only inspired her audience but has managed to help create an awareness of Latin American folklore while integrating the culture and diversity of others.
I have seen how the beauty of art and dance help our community with a renewed spirit of hope, better able to handle the problems they face and bring families together.
