Kamilah Clark, a resident of Newark, NJ was born four months premature with hydrocephalus---water on the brain. A tube was place in her brain to drain the fluid and she was given two years to live.
Her parents were told that if she survived longer than two years, she would be mentally retarded. Now at 27, Kamilah has beaten the odds. She shows no trace of mental retardation and is currently a Caldwell College graduate with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology. Currently, she is pursuing a Masters in Mental Health Counseling.
Kamilah graduated third in her high school class. She has also participated in such programs as America Reads, YMCA Before-School Program, Urban League of Essex County, and Americorps throughout her college years.
Kamilah started a business known as Kreative Touches Greetings to work with her newfound passion. She decided to open this business because it helps put a smile on faces of people both young and old. "My goal is to inspire people to keep living. Thus, each piece of art I create is made with a touch of "kreativity and handmade from the heart!"
