Where Sheâ€™s From: Beautiful RajaÂ
Clark, whose Zodiac sign is Cancer, was born in Miami, FL but raised in Atlanta, GA. â€œThe most important thing I learned from my mother is to always be my own person, anything is possible when you believe in god and never give up,â€? she tells The Black Star News.
Raja attended the most prestigious HBCU, the renowned Florida A&M University and graduated last year with a Bachelorâ€™s degree. â€œI majored in Criminal Justice and minored in Social Work. My modeling career was launched in 2004 when I was featured in The Fantasy World Calendar 2005 Dyme Edition as Ms. October,â€? Raja says.
Where Sheâ€™s At: â€œI consider my career to still be in its beginning stages and there is so much that I still would like to accomplish.â€? Raja wants to eventually grace the covers of top magazines as a supermodel and actress. â€œA household name like Tyra Banks,â€? she adds, with a wink.
Raja cautions young up-and-coming models and actors to always have a tight game plan if they want to thrive. â€œBecause beauty will only get you so far, while brainpower will get you to your final destination and help you reach your goals in life. Knowledge is power.â€?
So how does this long-legged beauty prepare to step out? â€œI love anything that is Baby Phat--everything from the high quality clothing, footwear, accessories and Goddess perfume,â€?

For makeup the one and only MAC.â€?
