Born in Guyana South America, Tricia is the oldest daughter to immigrants who came to the United States in the late seventies. Growing up between Guyana and the US, she developed a deep passion for helping those that are less fortunate. Tricia spent the last 28 years of her life working with under privileged children and families.
