Where do you live?

Brooklyn, NY

Why Are You An Ashro Woman?

I'm an Ashro woman because I am just that: a "woman". I am strong, weak, fearless, fearful, bold, shy...an extrovert and introvert all at the same time. My only responsibility as a woman is to live truthfully and transparently with a whole lotta sassiness, lol. That's what an Ashro woman looks like to me, a woman walking in her truth.

2. What is your favorite part about fashion and style?

The freedom to express yourself through clothing. The choice of style we portray tells others who we are without ever having to open our mouths. It's the ability to walk in a room quietly, but your presence speaks volumes.

3. What makes you get up every morning?

My relationship with God. Knowing that I was created for purpose. Knowing that my life touches someone each day by the way I interact through my smile, how I speak, smell, and dress. All areas in which men and women have complemented me in, and said, I inspire and encourage them in as well.

4. Your best advice?

Don't worry about the caterpillar stage of your life, there's a beautiful butterfly waiting to emerge. Be yourself, trust yourself, love yourself. Even in your brokenness you have everything in you that you need to succeed. A minister once said, "Broken crayons still color".

5. What small thing makes you happy?

Eating, lol...good food, music and or fellowship with family and friends. Any or all of these at a time.

6. What has been your greatest struggle...and your greatest (or latest) triumph?

Procrastination! This is a struggle for me. Money management has become one of my latest triumphs.

7. How do you spend your free time?

Traveling the world...eg. Amsterdam, London, Paris, Spain, Jamaica, Panama, etc.. All places I've been and am going in the next few months. Other than traveling, singing, acting, mentoring or simply sitting on my sofa Netflix and chilling by myself.

8. What do you do for a living? What do you like most about it? What don’t you like?

I am an assistant teacher. I live seeing the light bulb go off in a students head when they grasped the work for themselves. I dislike the boundaries set on educating students. I believe learning is not just what's in the books but how you apply what your learn to your everyday life. Alot of youth need social emotional skills as well. I try to incorporate that.

9. Who influenced you the most in your life. Why? And in what way?

I honestly and sadly can say, I don't have an influence. Growing up I just tried to learn from the mistakes of others around me. There are people that do great things in this world, but I haven't met someone that I feel has touched me in that capacity. *This question really has been thinking now, too.

10. What is your best dish? Who do you make it for—and where do you typically serve it?

Spaghetti (at least I think so, lol). I'd make it for friends, family, myself. I have typically made/served it at my home or theirs.

11. Are you a woman of faith? How does that faith affect your life? Please tell us more?

ABSOLUTELY! It has only strengthened me as a person. I realize that everything is not in my control and it's ok to relinquish my control for help in areas I need it in. That God is bigger than my circumstances and He loves me...so I worry less and pray more. Then I leave the rest in His hands.

12. What makes you laugh?

Senseless comedies, cartoons, jokes and fun times with friends. Crazy things that people say.

13. What lessons has motherhood (or being a grandmother) taught you?

I'm not a biological mother, but I raised a daughter from the age of 6 months old to currently 25 years old. She also made me a "Lola" (grandmother in Philippine) of a 5 year old granddaughter. You could also count all the students I've had over the years, lol. It has taught me to lead by example. Be transparent about the good, bad, ups and downs that life has to offer. To encourage, but not enable. Once they are grown, allow them to live out life on their own terms with what you've taught them and be an honest, objective support system when they need it.

14. What occasions/events do you dress up for? And how often in a year?

Church, formal birthday parties, outings with friends and family. As often as they occur. So several times a year.

15. Are you in a sorority? Or is anyone in your family in a sorority? If so, which one and what does it mean to you?

SHO NUFF!! Many, even wigs, too. Which I call my hats as well, lol. I've worn hats to church.

16. How would you describe the Ashro woman? How do you embody her? Does the brand mean something to you? Any memories associated with the catalog?

Bold, yet elegant. I am that. I don't conform to others standards of dressing. I try things that catch my eye aesthetically. The brand to me means "out of the box". I say this because my first experience with the catalog was a pair of denim, leather and leopard boots. You guys offer unique and different pieces that the most modest to sassy woman can choose from.

Merrillville, IN

Why Are You An Ashro Woman?

Putting Faith in GOD and Kingdom interests first is what I do. I’ve learned to not be anxious about tomorrow, but by 🙏🏽 and thanksgiving to always appreciate each day. Each person and every moment. Each is truly equip with is own anxiety as found in his word. For years I’ve suffered through pain, barely able to walk, to even sit up and hold a cup or hold my granddaughter. What a precious gift to do both today. To serve my Heavenly Father to the best of my ability is truly a blessing. Through each step I’ve tried to always do so with a smile and a willingness to help anyone in need.

2. What is your favorite part about fashion and style?

I absolutely love 💕 the hats. Like my mother. I’m the 1 out of 4 who loves hats as much as she does. I’m not able to glam as much I’m use to but when I do, I truly am the Glammy of ‘Ashro Glamma’s’. 🥰

3. What makes you get up every morning?

I’m in love 😍 with my glampy, she the apple 🍎 of my eye. Growing more and more fond of my boss baby, grandson. I truly love sharing written word with her. She’s my spiritual shadow.

4. Your best advice?

Don’t worry and stress over how a problem or a disagreement begins. We can’t change what happened in the past. Root yourselves in the present and allow GOD’s Holy to change how you react and respond. Work on the solution. No matter how it starts if we keep responding the same, then the devil will keep using the same tools different look.

5. What small thing makes you happy?

Preaching. Spending time with my family.

6. What has been your greatest struggle...and your greatest (or latest) triumph?

Marriage is not easy. Keeping faith through really hard times. Seeing Jehovah’s mighty is beautiful. I love my husband despite the hardships. Our family. We’ve recently began our relationship again, the last week of court. My reliance on God and faith in him is so much stronger than my fears. Again 🥰 Phil 4:6 Do not be anxious 🙏🏽.

7. How do you spend your free time?

🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽. Worshipping my Father. Calling on those I can reach when the pain isn’t to great.

8. What do you do for a living? What do you like most about it? What don’t you like?

I owned and operated a 24hr child care as well as providing home healthcare visits. I did this for over 20 yrs. I loved it. It was so hard to stop. I’m a natural care giver. A nurturer. What I found is that no one could match that stride. I was full steam ahead for so long with no time to care for what was going on in my body. I’m sure most providers would agree that it is rare if at all possible, to find someone to truly fill our shoes in half the way we do. Which is why most close if the primary owner isn’t able. Downside.

9. Who influenced you the most in your life. Why? And in what way?

My parents. My mom, she’s so strong 💪, loving 🥰 and wise. A mother to everyone she meets. My father. Caring hard worker and taught us all the things he would his boys. Above all the gave us a great spiritual foundation. No Matt what, prayer 🙏🏽 first for everything. Before during and after. To always rely on God.

10. What is your best dish? Who do you make it for—and where do you typically serve it?

Neck bones. For my family at home.

11. Are you a woman of faith? How does that faith affect your life? Please tell us more?

Yes. I’m sure that everything is possible through Christ or Lord. The past 4 yrs plus yrs have been very challenging. Yet they’ve taught me that nothing is more important than my relationship with the Most High GOD. If I couldn’t approach God in prayer 🙏🏽, and read his word daily, how could I ever become his friend? I wake up with a smile 😊 knowing that today,i is going to be amazing no matter what because Jehovah gave his son for little ‘ol me to be able to prove yes, I’m worthy.Thank you GOD, and Thank you 🙏🏽Jesus for such a tremendous honor and privilege. Though it may be hard sometimes not take for granite making my decisions without first approaching God. Which of I could never had the ability to do so if Jesus had not given his life in behalf of many. Going back to learning to allow God’s Word the Bible to transform my life. Focusing on the things only I can change and control and leaning on him. He’ll do the rest. He will never fail us. He is our guarantee... What a gift to after be told I help them. How much that helped me.

12. What makes you laugh?

My glampy says the darnest things. She’s a jewel, her spiritual reasoning is something.

13. What lessons has motherhood (or being a grandmother) taught you?

Be patient with you kids. Don’t rush their love of GOD, be honest and consistent. Try not to confuse them or aggravate them by not be consistent in your teachings and faith. Show them the love and beautiful things of our Creator so he is real to them in their youth.

14. What occasions/events do you dress up for? And how often in a year?

Weekly Bible meetings. And couple Conventions. Really dress up for the Passover.

15. Are you in a sorority? Or is anyone in your family in a sorority? If so, which one and what does it mean to you?

No

16. How would you describe the Ashro woman? How do you embody her? Does the brand mean something to you? Any memories associated with the catalog?

I bought my first Ashro hat right before I became sick. I purchased it for the Memorial. Celebrating Jesus Christ sacrifice. Everyone still adores it. It’s class, style, safisitacan and flair that I love 💕 whenever look for some who’s Ashro women’s. As that I with blessing of God and the view I had as a women held to a classy sass. It’s taken 4 yrs and almost a divorced my husband to see the reality of my pain. Women of Faith, of strength, of love, morals and character hold ourselves to a higher standard. And as I look at the pictures of the women of Ashro. I see faith, family, beauty, and strength of all ages and shapes. But greatest is Love behind each pair of eyes.
