Shortly after Aviza's interview, she received word that she and seven other women in her category of women who had raised a certain amount of money in charitable efforts had won the title of Enterprising Women of the Year. The women she was honored with hailed from places like Washington, Las Vegas and New York City, but Aviza was the only woman from the Capital District, she said.
Aviza's name will now be featured in the magazine " a publication she said she is inspired by.
"It's kind of a magazine, which if you are a woman entrepreneur today, you really must get it," she said. "It's a totally different magazine and it's really about women " it's not about men."
The magazine covers topics that range from critical issues confronting women's businesses and lives to perspectives and anecdotes from entrepreneurial women.
All of the women of the year, including Aviza, will be featured in a later publication of Enterprising Women, on top of a three-day tribute at the Disney Yacht Club in Florida in March, where the women will attend business conferences and be able to network with one another.""
