From Jetsetter to Faith Preacher
A Supermodel’s Journey to Wholeness
This article on the journey of RZIM Speaker and former supermodel Tracy Trinita is by Geraldine Tan from Salt and Light and originally posted on July 27, 2018.
Fame and fortune. A jet-setting lifestyle. Global ad campaigns. Celebrity friends. Strutting the catwalk for the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Paul Gautier, Kenzo.
Tracy Trinita had been there, done that – before she even turned 20.
Never in her wildest dreams, growing up in a sleepy little Balinese village, did she imagine she would become Indonesia’s first supermodel.
Yet when she did, the happiness she thought would naturally come with riches and recognition was missing.
“There was an emptiness in my heart,” revealed Tracy.
She turned to her friends, in the hopes they’d have an answer. They proposed everything from partying to drug use and one, half in jest, even suggested suicide.
The only thing she was open to trying then, was partying. “But in the midst of the crowd and the loud music, I felt so alone.”
