As people say, the sky’s the limit, but many people aspire beyond even that, as they strive to do more than is expected of them. Trina L. Martin is an accomplished woman who is now at a point where all she wants to do is inspire and motivate other people to keep their dreams alive. She is an author, speaker, podcaster, and technologist who has worked in different respectable career fields.
After excelling as a naval officer with the United States Navy for 30 years and working as an accomplished IT professional for corporations, the FBI, and currently at her own technology company, Trina Martin has all the juice and aura she needs to inspire anyone. Her cumulative experience of working in different capacities and her journey through life have made up most of her talking points, and so far, many people have felt her impact in their lives and careers.
Trina’s topics center on themes like discipline, self-determination, overcoming adversity, pushing one’s dreams resiliently with heart and grit. Her passion lies in seeing people succeed in any field they choose, and she has chosen to toe that path professionally after working for decades and making herself a woman of substance. Her life’s journey did not exactly set her up for success as she comes from a family that couldn’t support her. As the youngest of four children, she realized early enough that all the goals she set for herself would only happen if she put in work by herself. She ended up enlisting in the Army and became the first person to attend college in her family.
Trina L. Martin graduated from Alabama A&M University, a feat she achieved all by herself, and then earned an MBA from Western International University. After spending many years in the Army, she transferred to the Navy, where she enjoyed a stellar career as an Intelligence Officer. She proceeded to work for the FBI as a Cyber Intelligence Analyst, and now, she runs her own technology company alongside her leadership and mentorship program.
As a flourishing black woman, Trina L. Martin has set herself apart from the lot and has shown the world what she’s made of. Her ability to set goals, work hard toward them, achieve them and surpass them has taken her places she never imagined. Her life was not without obstacles and odds, but with sheer and dogged determination, she reached her career goals and has made herself a beacon of hope for many young people and black women.
As a speaker, Trina’s approach to teaching people takes a relatable and honest route. She teaches women, professionals, entrepreneurs, and leaders how to develop the confidence to be the person they wish to become. She has helped other people realize their potential in various fields worldwide. Trina strongly believes that anyone can get results in their lives and professions while being human and the best version of themselves.
Using her personal experience, she reaches into the core of their hearts and encourages them to make moves that will turn their lives around positively. “My trials, tribulations, and achievements in life made me see that I was created to be an example to those who think their situation and circumstances bind them. If I can leave the unsupportive environment I was raised in to become a resilient woman, driven to succeed, and confident, I want to inspire others to realize the possibilities for their lives,” she says.
Her five-year goal is to be a highly sought-after global speaker who inspires and impacts women of color and other people to be confident in themselves and pursue their dreams without limits. She’s also looking to mentor women of color who wish to pursue careers in technology.
