Who is Trina Njoroge?
Trina is a 24-year-old psychiatric nurse and a beauty pageant queen from Hacienda Heights, California. Trina bagged the coveted Face of Kenya title in 2015, and was awarded Miss Hacienda Heights USA, and got to compete for the title of Miss California USA in January 2020.
Although Trina didn't get crowned Miss California, she still walked away from the competition with 'more confidence' and growth from her sisterhood. In an Instagram post, she wrote, "Seems like it was just yesterday that I got accepted in the pageant to represent my city!! Even though I didn’t walk away with the state title of @misscausa, I left with more confidence and growth from my sisterhood. This was another stepping stone to success and my journey will continue forward. Thank you everyone for your unconditional love and support."
Trina is a state-licensed psychiatric nurse. In 2018, she announced that she had passed her state boards. "I PASSED MY STATE BOARDS‼️ I’m officially a state licensed Psychiatric Nurse👩🏾⚕️💉💊This accelerated program kicked my butt, but I finished strong being class President and graduated top of my class!! I couldn’t have done it without the support from my family&friends. It doesn’t stop here though.." Clearly, there's no dearth of ambition or hard work on Trina's end!
If you're wondering why someone so smart and beautiful is turning to a reality dating show like 'Love island' to find love, then she reveals the answer in her introduction on 'Love Island' trailer. Apparently, the pandemic has been very hard on Trina's dating game. It's been so long since the 24-year-old beauty went on a date that she jokes she should just date herself.
So what is Trina looking for in her partner? In an interview with Parade, she revealed that these are the three traits that she doesn't want in her partner: "Somebody that can’t trust me, a narcissist, and someone who’s disrespectful." Although Trina has never cheated on anybody she reveals that she has been cheated on in an "emotional affair". She shares, "I haven’t cheated on a partner, but I was cheated on in an emotional affair. It was really rough, but it built my self-confidence and made me love me for who I am. I come into men’s lives to teach them love, but they come into my life to teach me self-love."
She also revealed that if she were a drink, she would be tequila. "I would say Don Julio. I love my tequila; tequila makes me crazy and gets me out of my nutshell. Tequila is me!" Fans are already rooting for her to find love and win the show. A fan commented on 'Love Island' show's Instagram post on Trina with, "She’s going to win I’m calling it rn." Another fan wrote, "She’s already my favorite ❤️." "Trina can have my heart 🤤 I need her!" expressed another fan. You can watch Trina's quest for love on the upcoming season of 'Love Island'.
