Be glad. Wear glad. Model Challenge

{Model Challenge Winner: Katherine Renda}

This past Spring, we held our second "BE GLAD. WEAR GLAD. MODEL CHALLENGE." The winner is determined by the amount of 'likes' the participant receives on her photo that we post on our Facebook page. The winning prize package includes $250 Gladiola Girls Gift Certificate and a Photoshoot for our Look Book. Here is a glimpse of Katherine's photoshoot for our Fall Look Book!

Katherine won with over 1,000 likes.

Katherine is from Milford, New Hampshire, currently studying Health Promotion at Liberty University. On her free time, she loves to travel and spend time outdoors hiking, biking, fishing, and kayaking. She also taps into her creativity through painting, drawing, and making jewelry. She is intrigued by nutrition and hopes to travel and educate underprivileged areas on health and disease.

A huge thank you to our friends at Telitha for doing her hair and make up!
