Sandra Costello is a photographer and Chief Hugger at Sandra Costello Photography. She has been a member of the Northampton Club with Angela Lussier since it launched last September. We checked in with her and here’s what she had to say after being a member of the Speaker Sisterhood for the past 8 months.

Why did you join the Speaker Sisterhood?

I had this incredible urgency to cultivate a voice for myself and share it with as many people as possible. I want to inspire, empower, and energize others. I want other women in particular to do the thing they thought they couldn’t do and I hope to be a part of that transformation.

What do you love about it?

I love the connection and the thrill of moving others to action and doing good in their life and the world.

How has becoming a member helped you?

Oh gosh, I have been changed in so many ways. I am more energized, confident, daring, and engaged in my everyday life. I have found new ways to use my words, my voice, and my body to deliver powerful messages.

Have you experienced any surprises or unexpected benefits since becoming a member?

The incredible community of women I have met through the Speaker Sisterhood has been wonderful. They totally lift me up and have my back. Also, I have completely fallen in love with story telling. I’ve loved stories since I was a child, but through the Sisterhood I have a new appreciation for how personal stories create better connection and engagement. It’s awesome.

Why should someone else join?

If you are looking to empower yourself, engage your clients, or move ahead in your career, this is the place for you. It’s energizing, fun, creative, and incredibly supportive. Become a better speaker and an amazing human.
