Ashro Woman: Sandra T.
Meet Ashro Woman of the Week, Sandra T. from West Point, GA.
What you need to know about Sandra is that she does not shy away from challenges—whether they are the welcome kind of challenge that we choose… or the not so welcome kind of challenge that chooses us.
As a 2021 pageant winner (Ms. Southwest Classic Senior Georgia), Sandra is beautiful on the outside. She is also beautiful on the inside.
This strong breast cancer survivor has walked through the hardships of uncertainty and chemotherapy. Thankfully, she didn’t have to do it alone. Her sister Ruth was right there by her side. “She was with me during the most difficult time of chemotherapy.” God was there too. “Without God, I couldn’t have made this journey.”
In the end, Sandra truly triumphed. Not only did she make it through this struggle, but she used it to educate others through her pageant platforms in the Ms. Southwest Classic Senior Pageant and the Ms. Senior Georgia Pageant.
YESSS! Sandra is a member of The West Point City Council, a sister in the Alpha Kappa Sorority and a devoted volunteer with children and the elderly.
She makes every family gathering sweeter by making one of her delicious signature cakes. And when she tells us, “Enjoy every moment because life is so short,” let’s make sure to take it to heart.
