What is your first and last name? 

Kelly Clark

Where do you live? 


How did you first hear about GenTwenty?

I was actually a subscriber of GenTwenty for a couple of years before becoming a contributor. I can’t remember exactly what I was searching for, but a GenTwenty article came up as one of the top links. The more I explored the blog, the more I loved it.

When did you start writing for GenTwenty?

It took me looking at the contributor application a few times over two years to apply for it finally. I brushed it off many times because I didn’t feel like I was a good enough writer. Now I know why I kept coming back to it. I was meant to become a writer. I joined the GenTwenty team in October 2019.

If you had an extra hour in the day and you could do whatever you wanted, what would you do and why?

I would probably read. I love reading, but I never really set a time to do it. I would be able to work through my to-be-read list a lot faster.

How do you recharge when you are stressed?

I do things that I enjoy, like watching One Tree Hill, reading, or doodling. I’ll also journal about it if I need to clear my mind.

Favorite sweet or savory treat?

Definitely ice cream. My favorite is brownie, cookie dough.

What’s the best piece of advice you would give to another twenty-something?

Don’t be so hard on yourself. I know it seems like you are the only one that doesn’t have your life together yet, but everyone has struggles and insecurities at some point. No one likes broadcasting what they are struggling with, which makes us feel alone. Try opening up the conversation, or search TikTok, and you’ll start to find people to relate to.
