When we say ‘African models are simply AMAZING‘, we mean THEY ARE SIMPLY AMAZING!! Every day over here at Zen, we get to meet and connect with some of the best models from all over Africa and this week, Our Model of the Week is a model all the way from the Southern part of Africa. Donna Solomons is a 22 year old South African model from Cape Town. Presently signed under Outlaws Management Cape Town, Donna describes herself as a career driven woman who loves modelling and is also passionate about Public Relations. “I am a very ambitious person and love to model” she tells us. “I am an out-spoken lover of life who enjoys reading books by Paulo Coelho, listening to songs by John Legend and Katy Perry and loves the outdoors“. Donna officially started modelling when she was 12 and has so far worked with various international photographers like Wesley Vorster in South Africa, to Yuri Arcurs in Denmark and Jerome Tisne in France. She has also appeared in various high-profile advertising campaigns which include Mr. Price and Edgars, and made the Sports Illustrated SA new model search top 15 last year which is one of South Africa’s top model search competitions. When Donna isn’t modelling, she works as a PR and operations manager at Epic Communications in Cape Town. “I love my job at Epic Communications and it’s a great feeling being able to combine it with my modelling career“. One of Donna’s favourite quotes is from Paulo Coelho “The great blessing of life is the existence of tomorrows – and having dreams to realize”. Donna is full of energy and is one South African model we see going places.
