Why did you choose to become an ambassador for Nirvana Water Sciences?

Nirvana is about life and longevity. Even in the name, the formula, the science, the people. I’m a spiritual being, it was inevitable for me.

About Donte

Donte Whitner knows a thing or two about adversity. When he was six years old, he was involved in an accident that shattered both of his legs. The doctors told him he'd never walk again, let alone play sports. He proved them wrong by going on to play strong safety at Ohio State University, then being drafted to play professional football. He retired after his 2016 season in Washington. Now, he is a football analyst and financial educator.
