Gieneyra joined artworxLA programs in March 2017. Through artworxLA, Gienerya took part in our Advanced Program residencies in Music Production, Fashion Design, and Filmmaking. Passionate about visual storytelling through entertainment and animation, she completed intensive programs with The Actors Gang and Ryman Arts. Dedicated to supporting Los Angeles’ art community, Gieneyra has supported art programs at Inner-City Arts and Art Division. In 2018, artworxLA connected her to summer intensive scholarships to study architecture at UCLA and illustration Idyllwild Arts. Gieneyra’s participation in after-school music workshops with artworxLA and Beats by Girls led to her participation in the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. This unique opportunity enabled her to meet and join Grammy Award-winning artist Alicia Keys for an on-stage appearance. In Spring 2019, she joined LA Times High School Insider to take part in their cross-sector high school collaboration program aimed at providing students a platform to share their ideas about changing their community.  On track to graduate later this year, Gieneyra is looking forward to enrolling at ArtCenter College of Design to study animation.
