“I feel really honored to be taking the first steps into this industry. I never had the confidence when I was younger to dress well, and avoided any type of fashion and femininity, and I’m enjoying the chance to embrace it at this point in my life,” Ronda continued.

The multi-media marketing campaign will appear in print, digital and social media and events on behalf of the brand.
