Astrid Silva was born in Durango, Mexico. At the age of four, Astrid immigrated to the United States with her mother, as her father was already in the states with stable employment. When she was five, her family made the move to Nevada, where she has since resided. In 2006 she graduated from the Magnet program at Advanced Technologies Academy. After she found she lacked access to resources and accurate information to navigate the higher education system, she found a college counselor to help, and in 2011, she received her Associate of the Arts from College of Southern Nevada.
In 2009 Astrid began getting more deeply involved in the politics surrounding the DREAM Act after a chance encounter with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. From that moment on, she became the unlikely poster child for the DREAM Act in Nevada, where she was one of only a handful of students in the state to reveal her identity and status in the United States. In 2011, Astrid and a small group of dedicated DREAMers and allies formed DREAM Big Vegas, an organization that aims to educate the community about the DREAM Act. Though DREAM Big Vegas is a young organization, it has received national acclaim for its work with DREAMers in Nevada. After Deferred Action was announced, DREAM Big Vegas helped organize workshops and help for DREAMers who were unable to obtain information through other sources. In the future, Astrid aspires to obtain her Bachelors degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, but at present, organizing and helping other students is her highest priority.
