Episode 22 - Second Chances, Second Acts

 Sandra E. Martin

Sandra E. Martin

Sandra E. Martin was raised in a family where convention was key and changes were few. She grew up in a first-generation Trinidadian family in Toronto in the 80's and learned early on that the expectation was to follow the societal norms which included finding a "good" job, getting married, having kids and not rocking the boat.

When life happened for Sandra, she realized that the perfectly proscribed path that was planned out for her was not going to be her destiny, so she wrote her second act and moved forward into the unknown. It all worked out quite well in the end and she has learned a lot about how her childhood informed her views on life and parenting, and how her "second act" today is progressing.
