Geneva Young was a child actress in the 1980's and 1990's. In 1989, she portrayed the character of Young Éponine on Broadway, being eleven years old at the time, and sharing her part with Emily Antoniades. This was Geneva's second time onstage, though she would go on to have several other roles in her youth.
The picture to the right shows Geneva at age eleven when she was with the cast, but it is not photograph used in the programme at the time.

Geneva grew up on Coney Island, near Brooklyn, New York, and was the middle child of three. Her oldest sister Lauren was born on December 10, 1973, and her youngest sister Esther was born March 24, 1985. The girls lived with their two parents as well as their grandmother and a dog named Jack.
When Geneva was four she was asked to sing a solo part in her kindergarten class choros and decided she wanted to sing when she grew up. This resulted in her parents signing her up for singing lessons, which she stopped attending when she was six and moved on to a local musical theater class. Not long after Geneva took on her first ever role as Gretl VonTrapp in The Sound of Music, playing the youngest of the VonTrapp children.
Geneva would land other roles later on in life, including a reprise in Les Mis as the Factory Girl in the 2009 St. John's cast, where she had since moved to.
