I am a very passionate person about whatever I do. I am also an honors student in college who love music, sports, travel, reading, and making a difference in other individuals life. I also sponsor a child form Guatemala. I might not be able to help all the child but I believe I can start with one.

Desta, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My aspiration and passion in life is to make a difference in this world. I want to make the world a better place. As a child I have been through so much and I don't want others to experience that.
