Born and raised in the Bronx, Trisha is a fiery Jamaican descendant mixed with harmonizing airy Libra who began realizing her dream of being a performer at the age of eleven. Thanks to her grandmother, who upon shocking discovery of Trisha's singing voice –and in spite of her overwhelming shyness– immediately threw her into the church choir. Trisha’s early passion for the arts became solidified while attending the famed LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, after which she earned her BA in Theatre, plus minors in Music and Dance from Lehman College – City University of New York. She also completed the Two Year Professional Workshop at Circle In The Square Theatre School right on Broadway for both Musical Theatre and Acting, challenging herself to dive further into her love of acting.
