Amy Rivera Cuevas had always dreamed of studying the arts. Beginning at a young age, Cuevas found a passion in singing and then began to play the piano. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Cuevas did not have many opportunities to pursue her passion as the arts were not offered at her school; she was only able to participate in choir outside of classes. Cuevas has quite the resume, having been the winner of Viva la Voz Puerto Rico, a singing competition for young artists. Recently Amy and her mother Zenaida Cuevas moved to Toledo where she has enrolled in the Toledo School for the Arts. While the school has gained a talented student, the story that brought her to Toledo is not as glamorous.
