Newspaper Article in Urban Latino December 1995
The local mainstream media is notorious for continually doing profiles on single dimensional Hispanics who come across as if they refuse to acclimate beyond barrio culture. Most of the more highly profiled Latinos who grab local headlines in the Examiner of Chronicle and other Anglicized media do more harm in out struggle to broaden the Hispanic image than good. They merely reinforce decades-long stereotyping which nails us to a corner from which many upwardly mobile Latinos are trying to pull away. Rarely would a truly sophisticated Latina such as Sandy Montenegro be given the deserving recognition by local Latino groups and major media whose agenda prefers to perpetuate more parochially limiting images.
Sandy is a Latina with beauty, brains, social pedigree, sophistication, good fashion sense, well-read; a business professional with no history of the usual affirmative action handout subsidies, fluently bilingual and socially well-respected in many upscale business and social circles in the Bay Area. She knows, as any true sophisticate advocates, when and how to interface and harmonize with an internationally diverse range of populations. In other words, Ms. Montenegro is representative of the Latinas for this decade and into the year 2000. Latinas such as she have more class than most of the locals who are the usual recipient of awards bestowed by most non-profits whereby they usual just recycle the same names each year. IN many cases, these award functions merely take turns awarding individuals who pose no threat to cultural change. Sandy Montenegro defies cultural stagnation; she epitomizes where most educated Latinos should be within the framework of Hispanic American social and cultural progress.
Ms. Montenegro’s biography already reads like an international who’s who. She is Vice President of Marketing for Integrated Computing Environment, a software development and consulting company. She holds an MBA from Harvard with an emphasis on entrepreneurial management and international marketing. A former beauty queen from Guatemala, she is fluent in English, Spanish, French, and German. Her attractive figure is maintained through the physically grueling disciplines of swimming, tennis, squash, skiing, windsurfing and she even flies small aircraft. This woman of all seasons can enliven any indoor social event by her additional talents with the guitar and piano.
Her shrewd sense of protocol and physical style has opened a plethora of social and business opportunities normally reserved for the non-minority elite in the Bay Area and in Europe. The socially selective and prominent Red & White Ball annually boasts of having Sandy as one of the prominent members of the coordinating/planning committees for their major events.
As in years past, Ms. Montenegro wand other locally impressive young cosmopolitan moves and shakers under the leadership of Ms. Peri Livermore will host their annual Red and White Ball on December 12 at the St. Francis Hotel. This year tickets are $135 for the under 35 age bracket and $175 for the rest. The event is a sell-out every year, however for possible available tickets, their phone is 885-1622. The proceeds go to San Francisco Beautiful this year.
Sandy’s Charity Work
Sandy’s main charity contributions are directed to Helps International. Helps International is a US 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that in partnership with individuals, local and national governments, works to improve drinking water quality, medical care, education, housing, agricultural and economic development in Guatemala.
