Describe your success as an ambassador? Being a Sakroots Ambassador, has been the best experience I have ever had. Not only have I helped to spread the “BEST” brand ever around the south, but I have enjoyed every second of it. It is so much fun to sport all of my trendy Sakroots gear everywhere I go, and answer everyone’s questions about the brand.
What is the best part about representing Sakroots? The best part about being a part of the Sakroots team is seeing everyone fall in love with the products I show them. All of my friends have become completely obsessed along with myself! We are always sending each other pictures of people we randomly see with a Sakroots accessory!
When and how did first discover your true love for Sakroots? My mom gave me a purse for Christmas one year, and I have been hooked ever since! I would constantly search the web for new products, and one day the ambassador program popped up on the home page and I had to immediately apply!
What has been your favorite event that you’ve held for the Campus Circle program? My favorite Sakroots event was the Homecoming challenge. I felt so at home spreading the Sakroots love around my beautiful campus during homecoming week. I had “goodies” to pass out, and everyone was so happy to receive them and learn about the brand. During homecoming week, everyone is already having a great week and I just got to make their weeks even BETTER!
When did you really feel like you made an impact as an ambassador? I feel so accomplished when my friends will send me pictures of the donations they have made to Sakroots’ charities while they are purchasing an item. And the fact that Sakroots matches the donations makes it even better. It’s such a great feeling to know you are helping out such wonderful charities.
What would be some tips that you’d give for an incoming or new ambassador? Come into this journey open minded. It can be the best journey you ever experience if you want it to be. Learn to be out going with people, and you will have the time of your life! It’s truly an amazing opportunity!!
