Ashton Joseph is a dance performance major at Oklahoma City University. She also has obtained her minor in History. Ashton is a member of Alpha Phi Sorority, the American Sprit Dance Company, Pep dancers, and also is consistently on the Vice President’s List. Ashton is also a cervical cancer survivor and uses her personal experience to promote her platform Beat the O.D.D.S.
O.D.D.S is an acronym that facilitates success. The “O” stands for overcoming obstacles. Knowing that obstacles will come your way and that you are not alone in your problems is the first step to overcoming them. The first “D” stands for determined destiny. People can take comfort in the fact that God does have a plan for them. No matter how unclear that plan might be, eventually they will see that God knows best. The second “D” stands for dedicated desire. To succeed you need passion and a plan. No matter what outside interferences you many encounter, nothing will deter you from your plan if you are completely dedicated to it. The “S” stands for refusing to be a statistic. You are the only one who controls your life; no one can make you a stereotype except yourself. The O.D.D.S. concept can be implemented at any point in someone’s life. Ashton believes that cervical cancer can be treated, cured and prevented. By campaigning for awareness on this vital issue, Ashton knows cervical cancer can be irradiated.
Ashton is Miss Black Oklahoma City University 2008 and Miss Black Oklahoma 2009. She continues to participate in pageants because she loves the chance to perform. Ashton’s ambition after college is to move to New York and become a Broadway performer.
