"It gives me great pride to recognize the great contributions of the Venezuelan American community in the United States.

Given this acknowledgement, Osio has said: "I am honored and grateful to have been considered within this outstanding group of Venezuelans. This event once again demonstrates the importance and recognition that this country gives to the effort and merits of the Hispanic people. This tribute rather than a prize to my management and my team, is a commitment to continue working and demonstrating the professionalism of Venezuelans abroad."
