Born to parents from El Salvador, Genesis Benitez was born on Long Island, New York. Her parents left El Salvador in the 1980s during the civil war, and they moved again in 2003 from New York to Stone Mountain, Georgia.
Since 2012, Genesis had been working as a barista at Starbucks. She then graduated from Georgia State University in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in art history. She focused on ancient art and also had the opportunity to study ancient Latin American art history during a semester at Emory University during her senior year.
Outside of the office, Genesis enjoys spending time with her family and learning about world history and art history.
