Ever since the launch of the social media platform, Instagram, a surge of influencers have come into the spotlight to document their journeys.
One such influencer is Cindy Tran, a 27 year old, first generation Viatnemese American woman. Having first posted on the platform back around 2017 to showcase her fitness journey, she has amassed a bold 887 thousand follower count since. It is safe to say she has gained some popularity over the years. Through her success, she has been able to launch her own brand of athletic wear and make a career built on fitness training and modelling. With an aspiration to launch her own fitness empire, it seems that Tran is steadily treading and paving the path to doing so. But what steps led Miss Cindy Tran to the success she enjoys today?
Going on a rewind, like many others, Cindy Tran stems from humble origins. She was born on April 6, 1993 in Arizona to hard-working immigrant Viatnemese parents who like the majority of other parents, strove to give their children the best life possible. Tran grew up especially looking up to and admiring her father’s work ethic who she cited to always be working hard and persevering through any odds he encountered. She attributes her own success and work ethic of today as a reflection and product of what she saw in her father through her early years. Emerging from her childhood and adolescent years, Tran first began to take an interest in fitness and athletics around the period she was enrolled in high school. At the time, she moved with her family between cities in Arizona: from Gilbert to Tucson. As Tran began to become more involved with exercise and working out, she realized that she genuinely enjoyed it and had unearthed a new passion and thus, carried it onwards with her past her high school years and into the current day.
Like many other American students, after concluding high school, a secondary step commonly follows suit: college or university. Miss Cindy Tran was no exception in this regard and was actually awarded an Obama scholarship in 2017 to attend one of Arizona’s prestigious universities: Arizona State University. However, as that year also coincided with the launch of her Instagram, she ended up making the conscious decision later on to drop out and pursue her budding career as an influencer once her Instagram started to gain momentum.
As Tran’s Instagram bloomed from a few followers to a full blown following, some more changes aside from leaving school occurred. Tran decided to relocate from her home state to Miami, Florida. She also launched her own website to sell her own workout gear primarily being athletic attire such as leggings and sports bras. She also began her own role as a trainer to help and encourage her followers to achieve their own dream bodies and fitness goals. She has built her brand on being “self-made” where her figure has been sculpted naturally through years of rigorous dedication to the gym rather than a product of cosmetic procedures. The brand she has constructed for herself aims to let others know that they can very much do the same and follow suit if they set their minds and time to it just as she has once done and continues to do so.
It has been a long time coming and Miss Cindy Tran continues to beat the odds. It is uncertain what the future holds but at a glance, the hard work she has and continues to put in is paving her way closer to her own fitness empire one deadlift at a time.
