Ashro Woman: LaTasha B.

latasha

Meet LaTasha B. from Bridgeport, CT

LaTasha is a beautiful example of what can happen when parents and grandparents pour into a child. At 7 years old, her grandparents introduced her to a deep Christian faith that taught her how to handle the valleys of life, “My faith allows me to use the word of God against trials and tribulations.”

Growing up, her father gave her discipline and confidence. “My father explained and demonstrated examples of a well-prepared and structured life, and he educated me on what a tragic life could be.”

He also told her that she could be anything she wanted to be. LaTasha listened. Just this year, she retired after serving as a Sergeant Judicial Marshal for 22 years. Congratulations, LaTasha. Thank you for inspiring us! Read more.
