Zion Clark

Zion Clark was born in Columbus Ohio with a rare birth defect called Caudal Regression Syndrome. Being born without a father in his life and a mom that was unfit to take care of him he was given up to the foster care system at birth where he spent 17 years of abuse, neglect and suffering. Through the love and passion for music as well as wrestling Zion was able to turn his life around and was eventually adopted by his mom Kimberly at 17 before aging out of the system. He used his struggle and failures to fuel him and become an All-American wrestler, professional track athlete, Guinness World record holder, author, motivational speaker and advocate to reform the foster care system so kids don't have to experience the suffering he did.
