It took a while for her to find herself...but when she did, oh what a beautiful sight it was.
To be completely free in myself. To be present in every moment.
To be love to all people.
These are my truths.
I’m Kiah Clingman. Welcome to my world.
Expressing feelings and emotions through words, pictures, personality, and speech has been a big part of my life. Even in my childhood I wanted to achieve a high level of confidence. Whether hamming it up as my parents captured me on the VCR, mimicking various TV personalities, reciting poems, or incessantly reading one of many books, I knew I wanted to be expressive. I found solace and satisfaction in writing and reading. I found refuge in reading my own writings aloud and memorizing my lines for plays and other spoken word performances. I was overwhelmed by the positive response of my many presentations, but more importantly I was inspired even more to continue to improve my ability to communicate.Kiah Alexandria Clingman is an actress and producer
