Geneva Rivera

Geneva was born in Honolulu to Noelani Rodrigues and Billy Rivera of the original musical group in Waikīkī, the Society of Seven. Geneva is Native Hawaiian.

She studied dance from the age of 2 years old and went on to become a principal dancer for Iona contemporary dance theater in 2001 when she brought awareness to global issues like the exploitation of women.

On November 16, 2023, Geneva became a survivor of domestic violence and human trafficking.

In the near future, Geneva hopes to graduate from the Hawaiian Studies program at the University of Hawaiʻi. She also vows to dedicate her time to being an advocate for human trafficking and domestic violence.
