Trinitee Hyssen is working to ensure that no one goes through what her brother and family have had to go through.
Trinitee, a 13-year-old fashion model from Baton Rouge, La., plays an active role in the Traeh Thyssen Have a hearT Foundation.
The organization was created after the death of Trinitee’s 13-year-old brother by suicide as a result of bullying. She explained the mission of the Traeh Thyssen Have a heart Foundation is to bring awareness to bullying and suicide in an effort to stop and prevent them both.
Trinitee, who recently was a winner at the Magnifique Showcase in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., hopes to become a professional runway and print model.
Magnifique is organized by former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Victoria Henley.
Trinitee also her eyes on other dimensions of the fashion industry. She hopes to design her own clothing line for people of all sizes.
Trinitee said she believes “everyone possesses a unique beauty created by flaws. These flaws give each person his or her own spark and that clothing and accessories simply ignite the spark to produce a beautifully made fireworks show of beauty.”
In addition to modeling, Trinitee said she dances, sings and acts. On top of that, she’s a scholastic athlete who holds a 4.0 grade point average.
