Niya Rivera/Hadleigh:.

I was cast as "Star" in the gripping production of "The Grip." I became part of the Las Vegas Movie Tours, where I portrayed Nomi from "Showgirls," and explored the realms of the supernatural in "Ghosts Don't Cry," contributing both as an actor and makeup artist. I have engaged with audiences as an emcee for events like Non-Stop Hip Hop and Glam

As a fine artist I played a pivotal role in shaping the Mayors Gallery, advocating for women's suffrage, and have left my artistic signature at City Hall's Grand Gallery through the "Lead with Love - Gracie's Place and HopeLink" project, a piece that has journeyed throughout Las Vegas.

My work has been featured in notable publications such as Luxury Magazine for Southern Highlands, the Review Journal, Nevada Business Magazine, and Magazine Ascaya,.
