Pillars Speaker: Derek Clark
Derek Clark knows first-hand the power of attitude in coping with adversity and overcoming hardship. At the age of five, Derek’s mother and stepfather (his biological father was in prison) abandoned him at a psychiatric hospital. He was then turned over to the California foster care system, where he would spend the next thirteen years of his life, contending with rejection, humiliation, emotional distress and overwhelming anxiety. Yet through it all, Derek never gave up, and went from victim to victor. He literally took a disadvantage in life and turned it into an advantage. His remarkable story is one of resilience and redemption, from his personal to professional life.
