Brave, Determined & Loyal.
Trinity is not only a 13-year old with a heart of gold, but she is also a go-getter who has delved into starting her own business, Boha Tribe.
Boha Tribe all started when Trinity found herself fronted with the $20 Boss Challenge at her school which see’s young teens with entrepreneurial spirits, pitch a business proposal – with only a $20 budget!
Trinity dived straight in and embraced the opportunity, quickly coming up with an idea that draws from her roots and her passion; healthy habits and living toxic free lives. Soon, her and her teammate were off, working together (over long hours!) to produce not only a business model, but also prototypes of their range in order to really wow the judges. Shortly there after, the duo found themselves presenting their range of eco friendly, non-toxic beauty items that included bath bombs, bath salts, body shimmer, shower melts and more to the guest judge: Steve Baxter!
Luckily, pitching to former QLD Chief Entrepreneur, Tech Mogul and Shark Tank host didn’t throw her off her game and in the end, Steve himself placed them in the top three! A huge boost of encouragement some someone who really knows their stuff!
After their exciting pitch and immediate success and recognition, Trinity’s fire was sparked and she decided to pursue this business idea further, but perhaps with a slightly bigger budget. The idea, supported by her friends and family, has turned into a lively small Brisbane business that not only sells these non-toxic items direct to consumer, but also hosts workshops to teach you how to make the range yourself!
In the lead up to Christmas, Trinity admits the workload has been growing at a rapid rate, leaving her spending her weekends making stock furiously to cater with the demand. Of course, the young entrepreneur doesn’t see this as an interruption to her social life and is instead ecstatic about what this means for Boha Tribe and it’s future!
Congratulations, Trinity – we know your confidence, determination and that fire burning inside will propel you to new heights in 2018!
