Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos? (12 more interview questions).
Our readers would love to get to know you more Donte. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I got all my tattoos at 17. I regret a lot of them. But I also love having so much, makes me feel unique. Basketball is my favorite sport and I run pretty well lol. Childhood wasn't so good, been in 3 different Forster homes since 4 years old.
Donte, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
To be an international model, and to show people what you come from is not what you have to become.
Who is your inspiration in life Donte? How do you keep inspired?
Thinking.. Chris Brown and Dave East, those two guys I relate to a lot. Chris Brown; an international star, give me belief and hope because of His many accomplishments. It's hard trying to do something you love and not seeing instant gratification. You start to disbelief and give up.
