Confessions of a Supermodel

On 8 Nov 2017, a hundred teen girls, mothers, leaders – and some guys! – gathered at St. Andrew’s Cathedral to hear Indonesia’s first supermodel, Tracy Trinita, share her life story.

It was a night of warm fellowship with fellow sisters – one that had spontaneous bursts of resounding laughter, and silent moments of reflection.

The audience caught an exclusive glimpse of a supermodel’s life through her lens; how she coped with beauty and body image, and how that ultimately led her to the Father. Everyone found solace in Tracy’s candidness and honesty. She shared her struggles as a mixed-race girl in a village of Balinese locals, and also being the tallest among all of them. She questioned God, “why did You make such a mistake?” But when she grew up, she understood that Love never makes any mistakes.

“Every creation is beautiful in God’s eyes, and God has an amazing plan and purpose, (for each of us). We are beautiful. And can you imagine? Out of 700 Billion people in the whole world, we’re the only us. I’m the only me. There’s no one who looks like me, talks like me, eats like me, or laughs like me.” – Tracy Trinita

It was a special reminder for us to realise God’s purpose for our every single one of our lives, because He created each one of us intricately, and most importantly, differently.
