Since she was a little girl, Sandra Began has been called a “straight talker.” She shares her real, raw, sometimes hysterical and always honest stories on life, loss, love, widowhood, parenting teens, mental health, resilience and surviving the the loss of her husband by suicide at 40. She believes stories heal, truth is power and honesty offers freedom.
To read Sandra’s take on life after loss, follow her on Instagram @thewidowproject and find helpful resources on grief and widowhood Q & A’s on her blog The Widow Project.
“Sandra is able to pack truth, sadness, hope, humor and love in a little paragraph with each and every post.” Heidi Gould
Sandra’s writing has been featured on Option B, Grown & Flown, The Mighty and Marquette Universities blogs/newsletters.
Sandra loves running, yoga, traveling. When the sun is out, you will find her with her boys golfing or boogie boarding hoping to stay away from the seals and sharks. She enjoys living a mile from the beach and a train ride to NYC. Sandra and her two boys live in Fairfield, Connecticut yet, as a Wisconsin native, she will always claim to be a Midwesterner. The accent will always be a giveaway.
