Trinity was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and graduated from El Segundo High School in a small town right outside LAX airport. She is currently in her third year studying Astronomy and Physics at the University of Hawai’i at Hilo. Away from the city lights of Los Angeles, she enjoys the star filled skies and engages with the community by sharing her knowledge about space as a Planetarium Operator at ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center. Her academic journey is enriched by the guidance from the amazing professors at UH Hilo, where she actively collaborates on research projects, including her recent participation in the NASA Minds 2024 competition. In her free time, you can catch her either exploring the island or, on a rainy Hilo day, watching Disney movies.
