This month's ambassador of the month is someone who has been contributing creatively to SheShreds.co for years, although you may not recognize her face so much as her work from behind the lens. Freeskier and photographer Melissa Benjamin has been with us almost from the beginning, and we've watched her grow and progress through the years, both as an athlete and an artist.
"What can I say about Melissa Benjamin…there is SO MUCH. She was one of our very first ambassadors. When I read her story about sleeping in her car all summer at Mt Hood so she could ski and follow her passion, I knew she was embodied everything SheShreds is all about.
Once I met this soft spoken, yet fierce young woman, in person I was blown away. We are lucky enough that she lives near our HQ! She is so talented, kind, ALWAYS pitching in to help however she can. She started off modeling for us and quickly became our photographer because she has so much natural talent. She interned for us and I had her by my side as we went through a major rebranding with an agency because I respect her eye for style and authenticity. She has now started her own business and I hope we have helped inspire her to always follow her dreams no matter what.
She is so kind, generous, friendly and sweet to EVERY SINGLE girl she comes across and makes everyone feel welcome. We can’t brag about her enough, she has been an integral part of SheShreds behind the scenes, behind the camera, in front of the camera, at all the ladies nights, rail jams and Jamborees…she has touched almost every single part of SheShreds in some way and want to honor her for all she has given to building this company!!!"
