Forrest Career and Technology Center where she completed a two-year program in Graphic Communications (GC).

Immediately following graduation, Donesha was off and running to Frostburg State University where she was enrolled in Secure Computing and Information Assurance (Cyber Security) with a Minor in Graphic Design. While at Frostburg, Donesha was involved in a little bit of everything. She was a devoted member and also held office in numerous organizations, including, but not limited to the National Technical Honors Society, The National Council of Negro Women, Caribbean Student Association (Vice President of Communications), Student Government Association (Senator), Paparazzi Perfect Modeling Team, Unified Voices Under God's Dominion and National Society of Leadership and Success.

Donesha had a passion for fashion. She was known to have her hair (often times WIGS), eyebrows, lashes, nails and make-up on fleek! She was the design queen having recently started her own Design Company. Donesha told all who would listen, that graphics and fashion is my passion, my dream, my everything, and from that was born Donnie's Divine Designs, dubbed "D3", where she was on a mission; the vision was "turning your thoughts into reality" to devise creative design ideas. D3 was geared up to specialize in ordering unique and quality bundles, wigs and braid hair. Our girl was the life of EVERY Party! She was a phenomenal friend and a sister-friend to her cousins whom we refer to as "The 2 live Crew". This crew was inseparable getting into things that we can only imagine BUT will never know.

Donesha will be missed immensely by everyone that knew her. She truly touched the lives of all whose path she crossed. She was the kind of young lady that anyone would be proud to call daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin or friend.
