Donna Bradley is an American model, agent, businesswoman and outreach/inspirational speaker based in New York City and Ohio. She’s worked with a who’s who list of companies both in front of and behind the lens and has since become a creative advisor for her peers looking to break in and break through the gated walls of the modeling and entertainment industry.
As a model, Donna has done ad work for Nikon, ClearVision Optical, and Microsoft. She’s been featured in videos for American Baby magazine, Lancôme, the Discovery Channel’s Planet Green network, and multi-Grammy Award-winning recording artist John Legend. Donna’s image has also graced the pages of magazines like Ebony, Essence, Jet, and Family Circle (among many others) featuring her likeness for Palmer’s hair and skin care products, as well as the billboard on New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza. Donna’s work as an agent has spanned from supermarkets like Target to periodicals like Men’s Health, Cosmopolitan, and Redbook to Disney and Viacom networks like ESPN, MTV, and Nickelodeon; Donna has since created her own image and branding consulting company, donnadivine Productions, with her husband, social activist and model Divine Bradley.
As an advocate for the empowerment of women of all ages, Donna is focusing her attention on young teenage girls in increasing self-esteem and confidence by way of a series of keynote speaking events and workshops that she is coordinating, directing, and teaching in 2011 and 2012. Based on her growth and maturation into a woman and entertainment professional, Donna’s work is a concentrated dosage of “how to make it” tools that can properly equip girls in situations that involve “travel and exposure” scenarios, life lesson sessions, and tutorials, all of which deal particularly with the struggle in defeating a small-town mentality, dream fulfillment, self-image building, and helping models and actors navigate through the waters of the entertainment business, per Donna’s knowledge and experience.
