We all make mistakes Donnel, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Model, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I had a little disagreement with a photographer because he wanted me to wear something I wasn't comfortable wearing, and he took it the wrong way.
Donnel, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I make sure that I am punctual and ready to work. I'm able to multitask, so that will come in handy when doing fashion shows and doing photo shoots.
Please tell us Donnel, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
It was an outside shot, I had to get in weird positions to suit the photographer's eye and compliment the lighting that was giving to us.
Donnel, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
When I gave a suggestion and the photographer did a guest shot of my suggestion and realized it worked.
Donnel please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
When I did the fashion show for my college homecoming show, and I was the first one in the line to walk out. I was the highlight of the scene, wearing a fur coat and leather pants.
Donnel, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
When I took a picture hanging off of a pole, it was different but it gave the picture a different look and it worked out in the long run
