REIGNING WNBA MVP JONQUEL JONES IS A SUPERSTAR IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE

I don’t think that I can be any more proud of the reigning WNBA MVP
Jonquel Jones. She is of course from humble beginnings growing up in
the same Eight Mile Rock settlement of Freeport, Grand Bahama in the
Bahamas that produced NBA star Buddy Hield. Jones’ beautiful face
graced the cover of ESPN The Magazine in the latest issue.

The 6-foot-6 Connecticut Sun forward is now starring in commercials
with NBA stars and has blossomed into one of most recognizable faces
in women’s professional sports.

ESPN kicked off Fifty/50 month June in honor of the 50th anniversary
of the passing of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that
prohibits sex-based discrimination in any educational institution that
receives federal funding, and gave women the equal opportunity to
play.

Over the course of this month, ESPN and The Walt Disney company have
been  presenting content and experiences that explore stories at the
intersection of women, sports, culture and the fight for equality. It
is great to see them showing love to Jonquel Jones.

The WNBA is a growing brand and the endorsement opportunities are
coming and gaining momentum.  The opportunities for someone like Jones
— Black and gay and, how she describes it, not traditionally feminine
is something that gracing the over of this magazine will  open doors
for.

Well done Jonquel.
