“Coming out in the new year, I’m releasing a book calledWork With What You Gotthrough Candlewick (publishing), by me and my writer James Hurst, which is an award-winning writer,” Clark explained. “I had the pleasure of working with him over the last year, two years, two and a half years of him just coming out to California, following me around the whole country, just seeing how I think, seeing how I move, talking to the people that got to watch me grow up, for all my viewpoints and thoughts on different situations.

“Especially the foster care system, which is something big that I’m working on, to help these kids,” Clark added. “This book hits every point, and I hope it opens the eyes to everyone that is either thinking about participating, or who is currently participating in the efforts to give these kids good homes and good settlements, so they can thrive and become participating citizens of our country.”

It is incredible to see someone like Zion Clark working to give back to his community, and inspire others to overcome whatever is in their path. It will be fascinating to see his story continue to unfold.
