Published

How did you come across Melanin Wonder?

I applied for a charity competition and Melanin Wonder worked with them at the time.
So you had the chance to compete twice.
My first thought was: why not! Showing different sides of me is always a plus.

What is your personal goal in life?

I would love to assist young girls/women achieve their dream. I would love to work with some distressed girls and work on their self esteem. I would advise them due to my own experience. If you have someone there to guide you it is always a lot easier. My main goal is to be a role-model for those who do not have any role-models in their life.
Don’t be surprised at how many of them are without good role-models or advisers.

What would you tell your younger self?

You are going to do/be great later! Don’t worry!

Happy, healthy, successful in whatever I am doing. I would most likely be modeling. Taking modeling to the next step would be a dream come true.
Also is owning a brand or a clothing line with a brand on my personal goals bucket list.
Dreams are meant to be chased!

What is something people do not know about you?

I am a star in acting! As a little girl I would always play act. I saw acting stars on TV and because of them I wanted to be an actrice.

If you had 3 wishes what would they be?

I would wish for World peace. Secondly I would love to be forever happy with my loved ones. Lastly, I would wish that my grand mother came back.

If you could change something in the world what would you change?

I would love to teach people that money is not everything. People make things too much about money alone. There are other things also very important in life, like family for instance.
The strength of your mindset will determine your succes.

What song would describe you the best?

Blaque – I’m good

Valentine Rontez shares knowledge

Who is Valentine Rontez?


My full name is Valentine Rontez. I identified myself as African-America for most of my life, until I did some soul searching. My Ancestors are from Benin-Togo Africa. I was born and raised in Queens, New York, United States.

How did you become a model?

After getting fired from my Doorman job at the Gucci Store on 5th avenue New York I went through a depression and felt lost. My sister took some of my Facebook photos and posted them on Modelmayhem.com, I then received a message from Jahn Hall (photographer) who was interested in shooting me. We took “Beauty shots” in his stairwell & his warehouse studio. After working with Jahn I rushed to New Jersey to shoot with my good friend Christopher Horne.

While there Jahn contacted me and told me Sean Bennett from Specimen Model Management wanted to represent me. I sent Sean my polaroids and from there he scheduled meetings all around NYC to meet with different agencies. I was declined, but Sean had saved the best for last.

I met the casting director Michelle Lee who was casting for Calvin Klein, there she trained me and taught me how to walk the runway. I found a side gig doing catering incase the door for modeling did not open. Later that day at work, Sean called me with surprising news that I was confirmed for a Calvin Klein exclusive contract in Milan Italy for fashion week. IMG was then interested in signing me.

If you had to describe your road to success in 5 steps, which 5 steps would that be?

Firstly, I found God & built my faith & courage with his promises as my meditation.

I needed to love & accept myself, to embrace the fact that I am a perfect imperfection.

Develop perseverance & a hard work ethic.

Practicing good sleep and eating healthy was a major culprit for my mindfulness.

Remain humble in balance with knowing your self worth.

How did you get the idea to make a video about showing people how to model?

I get countless of direct messages from people all over the world young boys & girls 15 – 40 asking for advice. Most have the dream but do not know where to get started. I replied to as many as I could on a daily. Then I decided to make a video because visuals work better then words.

How is life living as a model?

Modeling allowed me to focus on what my soul desires and visit places in the world I would have never imagined I would be. I have had the opportunity to meet so many inspirations that expand my mind to new dimensions. Although I am not much of a night life person parties overseas are extremely fun.

What are some of the downsides of being a model that people never talk about?

The uncertainty of anything. Anything could happen and if your looks a re not desired in the business that means business stops for you as well.

The basics of becoming a model PART 2.0

Would you ever design your own clothes?

 Yes! I am currently manifesting that. It would be great to have an own fashion collection.

We are obsessed with YOU-TUBE what are some of your favorite You-tubers to watch?

Haha I LOVE youtube after midnight. I watch comedy to inspirational videos. All-def-digital’s dad jokes are dry but hilarious to me. Jimmy Kimmel, Infinite waters (mindfulness), I listen to Jim Rohn, Les Brown, Gary V, & The Art of improvement for motivation. I am obsessed with lions and kitty cats weirdly so sometimes I wander there and get lost.

What are some of your favorite artists and songs u listen to?

I love any and all classical music. My favorite artist right now are Jay-Z, Peter Collins, A-Boogie, Kodak Black, J cole, Alicia Keys & Amine.

My favorite Song of Peter Collins

Where can we find you?

I can be found & reached on IG @x.valentine & Facebook “Valentine Rontez

In Lagos you are built to withstand a lot; traffic, drought, NEPA (electricity going out) and more of these type of adversities. People in and from Lagos are highly motivated by the hustle, getting the job done and getting cash. Get what is yours before anyone else does.

His most recent collection has been a particularly unique one. He designed it in Amsterdam. But all shirts in this collection have been handmade in Lagos, Nigeria. Which is rare, because most designers go-to areas are countries such as China and Malaysia. They get their merchandise made for a ridiculously cheap prize. He works with local tailors in Nigeria and he brings us amazing quality pieces to wear during sports but also on your daily grind. You can even rock these at great fashion events or just on a regular day at work.
