Rivera-Huckaby is a veteran actress, a writer and a producer and one of her more recent projects, Encuéntrate, has been picked up for international distribution. We recently caught up with her for a quick interview and caught a glimpse into her world. She was very candid, especially about why so many people struggle in the entertainment industry. "A lot of people don't treat their craft as a business and I attack everything that way," Rivera stated. "You have to have a goal, a business plan for whatever you do."
Women In Film & Television Atlanta has been Georgia's foremost entertainment organization is support of women since 1974; Rivera has been a member for four years. Her affiliation with the organization actually led to an unforeseen partnership that is turning out to be quite fruitful. "I actually met one of my key partners at a WIFTA event back in November of 2010 (crazy that I even remember that) and someone who was on the Board of WIFTA a few years back was the one who referred me to the person who ended up co-producing Encuéntrate. So, it is definitely what you make of it."
