Personality Description: Approachable
Having that relationship that Jesus Christ had with his own people (Jews), his circle of friends (his disciples), with random people who became a part of his larger story (Jews and Gentiles), and with sinners (aren’t we all) is the type of relationships I am going after. Consider me as an “Indie” individual.
Metaphorically, I have been cut from a diamond. Among my siblings, I am that piece that cast a different shade from the norm; and I have come to be fine with that. I agree with my amazing little brother, Mr. Isaac A. Clark, that our parents have done a great job installing values into us that can’t be forgotten: hard work, discipline, & respect. Even though I did not get my musical skills from my parents, their display of hard work, discipline, and respect on a regularly basis has propelled me to great heights as a young African American writer, actor, musician, and educator.
I am ambitious and driven; yet, I value humility, a helping hand, and listening skills.
