Nayda Cuevas was born in Puerto Rico, migrating in 1990 to Florida. As a means of negotiating alienation she turned to the arts to explore her identity. Cuevas' passion emerged for unearthing a visual language to better articulate through visual arts her observation and/or interpretation of her Latinx American experience.

Positive role models motivate us & teach us to uncover our potential. Cuevas' new series entitled #FierceLatina showcases a small group of woman made visible/popular by social media. From Engineers, to Activists to politicians, these women demonstrate strength in a society that makes visible stereotypes. Negative stereotypes that lead discriminations, injustice, & barriers that exclude Latinx from opportunities.
