Location: Los Angeles, California
Description: Photography services, specializing in portraits and holiday or special occasion photos.
A few weeks before Christmas, in December of 2018, Trinity’s home was burglarized. The thieves stole a significant amount of her possessions including her MacBook Air, Nikon D3500 DSLR camera and even her dog. She had saved up for over a year to make these purchases for her photography business. This equipment had been used by her to photograph events such as birthday parties, graduations, sporting events, and provided additional income for herself and her family.
Despite having her business equipment and personal belongings stolen, Trinity managed to rebuild and recreate her successful photography business, PhotosByDaNae3. When faced with difficult circumstances, Trinity has never made excuses or complained. Instead, she has always chosen to work even harder to find solutions and ultimately succeed in all of her artistic, academic and athletic endeavors. Growing up in South Central Los Angeles, Trinity's determination to overcome the adversity she faced continues to inspire people across the country.
With IMPACT’s help, Trinity was able to recover from the loss of her business equipment as well as jump start her photography career.

Recover $2,135 worth of photography equipment, including a Nikon Camera Model D3500 DSLR and MacBook Air.
