“Dream a little, Hope a little and Believe in yourselves…”
Yissendy Trinidad was born in the city of Santiago, in the Dominican Republic, and attended Hesser College in Salem, New Hampshire and the University of Phoenix in Boston. She holds a degree in Medical and Business of Arts and currently works as an actor, writer, producer and director.
Always with an interest in writing, Yissendy has already written several screenplays with a comedy drama slant, with Doumi Girls winning 9 awards and a nomination, and a deal from a streaming service to make it into a movie.
Her first book, Aim for The Stars: The Keys to Reaching the Sky, has versions in both English and Spanish and is a self-help title which aims to motivate readers to embrace forgiveness, keep faith and carry on looking for what they need on the inside to achieve the success they desire.
Today, Yissendy lives in California with her Pomeranian dog, Teddy and a Lovebird named Tweety. In her free time she enjoys walking in her local park, hanging out on the beach, meditating and attending spiritual retreats. When she gets the chance to travel she likes nothing better than immersing herself in a different culture and sampling the local foods.
As far as the future goes, Yissendy is looking forward to a successful career in the film industry. She would also like to open her own spiritual retreat one day and a school of music and arts that would be free for kids in Latin America.
