Geneva White

Geneva is drawn to spaces and people that are typically missed by others. This is reflected in her photography, as well as what inspires her work with young people. Geneva’s photography has been featured and exhibited in various publications and forums. Geneva’s own experience as a young person mirrors that of the youth that she serves. Before building SOW, Geneva worked for ten years in higher arts education, ultimately leading to her belief in the necessity to disrupt the current model of education that remains the barrier for many young people in NYC. Geneva received her Bachelor of Arts in Art Education at Seton Hill University. @genevalw
