As children, we once had dreams of who we wished to be perhaps for the mere fact that our parents painted pictures of particular professions as being prestigious or for the mere fact that we had no knowledge of what we wished for. For some, these dreams were fulfilled and for others, Mother Nature presented what it deemed fit.
I believe you can really associate with this and this is the exact story of Sandra Ohemeng Tiwaah popularly known as Sandy, TV presenter with Multimedia outfit Adom TV and host of Tigofest as I reached out to her on a one on one interview.
Born to a rich Presbyterian family of three (3) and raised in two of the busiest cities in Ghana, Kumasi and Accra, Sandy as she is affectionately called could not resist her involvement in church activities during her childhood ages where she developed a passion for arts although the dream of an hostess was still a vision.
Starting her basic and intermediary education from Martyrs of Uganda in Kumasi, Sandy continued to Kumasi Academy where she was an integral part of the entertainment committee and a cadet officer too.
Although she was then cut for showbiz, the dream of attending to passengers on a flight would not let her as she enrolled at the Global School of Aviation where she studied tourism as part of her course requirements but like Mother Nature does all the time, Sandy was destined for greatness with showbiz.
“I so wanted to be an air hostess…I was in love with the profession and how neatly they dressed and everything. OMG! I just loved to be an air hostess” – She said.
In 2011, Sandy made her first TV appearance as she hosted “Car Care” on Cine Afrik, a television program that sought to educate car owners on the best car care practices and maintenance culture as well as enlighten pedestrians on the best road practices after an encounter with owner of Capital TV Mr. Ricky Anokye and Mrs. Clarrita Halm who believed in her.
After two (2) and half years as host of the programme, Sandy walked through another door which had been opened for her and has since then hosted popular music show Tigofest which tours the country all year round.
Asked if she would still love to be an air hostess, your guess is as good as mine. No, Sandy loves what she does now and would choose it over anything else if given the chance again.
Currently, Sandy is with Loggy Entertainment and has two new television programs coming up with one ready to be shown on Adom TV.
