Tasha Forte was born and raised in Dekalb County, the Atlanta area in Georgia. She is a freelance model that has been modeling for four years. She likes spending time with family, especially around the holidays. She enjoys sports and watching old classic films.

How does it feel to be selected as one of the Abners Angels?

It is with great pleasure and honor to be selected as Abners Angels!! Abner is always checking on us, he has a heart of gold!! I’m lucky to be a part of his team.

What made you become a model?

I’ve always wanted to model.  It has been one of my passions and I enjoy posing for the camera.

What part of your body gets the most compliments?

My smile and my long legs.  When I was young I hated my smile and my long skinny legs.  I was teased in middle school and called Olive Oil.  I’ve matured and embraced my smile and the long legs.  I actually LOVE my legs now. My smile, everyone always compliments my smile. 

Do you ever get shy in front of the camera?

I always get shy in front of the camera, especially if I’m working with a new photographer for the first time.  But once I warm up it’s camera TIME.

How many times have you been published?

I’ve been published once in a hair magazine over 10 years ago.  I purchased the magazine and took it to my mom to locate my picture.  My mom went through the magazine several times and couldn’t recognize me in the photo, I knew then I could accomplish my dream.  I didn’t take modeling serious and actually stopped modeling until recently I got back into it.

What are your modeling goals for 2021?

My goals are to start getting PAID publishing gigs (commercials, ads, print, etc).

What would be your perfect breakfast?

I’m really not a breakfast eater, it all depends on my mood.  I might have a bowl of cereal, grilled cheese on a croissant or cheese shrimp and grits

Where was your favorite place to go as a child?

As a child we didn’t do much traveling, so as an adult I’ll have to say Myrtle Beach or any small not too crowded beaches.  I guess you can say I’m simple, lol.

What makes you different and how do you celebrate that?

I am different! I think I’m unique, I’m me.  I don’t need to follow trends, I am who I am and that I can CELEBRATE!

What is a common misconception, people might have about you?

When people first see me they see a conceded snobbish stuck up individual, however I am the total opposite.  Some people even are intimidated of me.  Some people first glance at me think I’m MEAN!

What is one thing you were afraid to do, but felt amazing after you accomplished it?

I was afraid of giving birth and raising my two kids, parenting is not simple.  Childbirth is one of the hardest things I’ve accomplished with no meds, lol.

If you could have an hour lunch with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and what would you talk about?

My grandfather George Levett, all his hard work paid off for US.  He planted the seeds for us, we continue to water and grow the seeds.  My grandfather was one of the first black police officers in Rockdale County.  He also was one of Rockdale first black entrepreneurs.  My grandfather was hard on us and at the time of course we didn’t understand, well hard work pays off.  My grandfather was a pilar in our community.  My cousin is now the first black elected sheriff in Rockdale County at the same agency my grandfather worked and my uncle is the first black elected coroner of Rockdale county.  You see those seeds my grandfather planted are still being watered and growing.  I’m the first female officer in my family, I never would have thought I’d follow in my grandfather footsteps.  I’m sure he’s looking down on us SMILING, #Levettlegacy.

How can everyone keep in contact with you on social media?

I must admit I don’t post as often as I should on social media.  I guess that can also be one of my goals for 2021.  It is the era we are living in.  Instagram: chic_fashionable_sassy and Facebook: Edgy_French Chic-MODEL.
