Trisha Ocona is a lifelong East Flatbush resident. Trisha grew up in a home where her Father was a furniture delivery truck driver and her Mother, a housewife. Although, she often wonders now how her parents financially survived on that income with four children and a mortgage. Trisha often faced the same challenges that many young people her age faced, including failing grades, constant fights, school suspensions and often running away. Trisha, however had mentors, community and professional leaders who stayed on top of her, all because they believed she had a greater purpose in life. Trisha eventually graduated, high school with three scholarships, and attended a few colleges. At the mere age of nineteen, Trisha was hired as an Administrative Assistant, at a Manhattan real estate law firm and property management company. While most of her peers, were looking for the traditional teenage retail job, Trisha was running a real estate law firm. At that firm she worked her way to manager at a tender age, doing everything from hiring and firing to handling the payroll and accounting, all without a formal college degree. It was not until after she left that real estate firm that she discovered her love for real estate, and went on to pursue her career. Trisha left her position at the real estate law firm to commit to further utilizing and developing her expertise, discovered passion, and divine calling.
