The Accomplishments
Of Today's
Married Women®

Mrs. South Dakota International®

Bekah Cheppenko

1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
Hands down my family. From my husband and kids to my siblings, parents and in laws. They have stood behind me in every decision I have ever made. I could not be more proud of them or more grateful for them! They truly are my rock.

2.How would you describe your husband?
My mother. I've never known a stronger individual in my life. She lost both of her parents & her only sibling young. With each loss, she never became bitter. She is the glue in our family & always reminds us that blessings and life is our gift from God!

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
My faith. Its the one thing that cannot be taken from me. Although I thoroughly enjoy my earthly possessions, I know that it is only through God that I have what I have and He has so much more in store for us!

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
"Hollywood" I will admit that the bigger the hat, sunglasses and shoes the better. I love all that is flashy! A girlfriend of mine referred to me as "Hollywood" at a bar-b-que because I was in 6 inch heels. The nickname stuck and I admit, it fits me well!

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
Summer! I hate the snow and the cold, and I don't enjoy fall or spring as they simply remind me that the snow is either coming or going. In South Dakota, our summer weather is short and I soak it up every chance I get!
