Kimberly has always had a passion for the arts. She began her acting and writing career at a very young age and has continued to enhance these creative skills throughout her young adult years.

As an actress, she has done theater and has been cast in several major productions here in the Atlanta market. She has done a myriad of extra roles, been featured as an extra, and has been featured as a principal actor.

As a writer, she published her first poem in 2002 for which she received an Editor’s Choice Award.  Her first book (Reflections of Life: The Love, The Joy and The Afflictions) was published in December, 2010 and is available for sale on Amazon.com. The proceeds from this book benefits Domestic Violence Awareness. A humanitarian by heart, she continues to be a strong advocate for promoting change and creating community awareness through her writing and projects.

Some of her aspirations include, but not limited to; creating a well-received reality show, pitching her novels and scripts to television and film companies in hopes to see the plots come to visual life, and creating her own production company. She is also an avid writer of playwrights and screenplays and has recently finished her first screenplay for which she is seeking film investors.

Upon seeing the vision of A Real Desire Kimberly saw a kindred spirit with Matthew and decided to join forces and help to elevate the cause. Kimberly says, "It's all about servitude." She has been a great support and works very diligently to help fund the organizations with great ideas that will benefit everyone.



Matthew Carter was born and raised in Daytona Beach, FL to Jean Grant Miley and David Lee Carter II at Halifax Hospital, and presently resides in New York, NY. Matthew is a well-rounded young man and has enjoyed art since he was a child. As he got older he explains that he began to see the human body itself as a work of art. Matthew says, “I’ve always wanted others to see me as a work of art in pictures and in person. This was the breaking point for me, and soon it began to really stir up and create more of the desire to become a famous model”.

Matthew soon began to perform in various clubs around Florida and modeling jobs after graduating high school. This helped him to mold his image and desire to want to become a model even more. Performing in different clubs is what gave him the courage and experience to act and model for a wide variety of audiences, and has also helped him to develop different techniques to prepare himself physically and mentally before a show or performance. Matthew is seen in more than a dozen fashion shows, movies and talk show appearances, promotional modeling, and as a host of other forums to build his portfolio and resume. Matthew is a hard working, dependable, and trust-worthy individual that certainly has the desire to be successful and provide a better life for himself and his family.

Matthew attended First St. Peter A.M.E. Church in Stone Mountain, GA where he was the president and director over the Dance and Drama Ministry. He attributes his success thus far to having a positive attitude, determination, passion and prayer; which he says these combinations of things have been the fire in his belly.

With the experience and wisdom Matthew has gained, he decided to start this non-profit organization to assist others who truly need and accept his help. A Real Desire is the name of his organization, and is building day by day. With this organization Matthew says, “After being told by my doctor that I was going to die of AIDS I decided that I will not die, but LIVE, and I will help who I can, when I can, while I can, before God calls me home.” He has truly dedicated his life to Christ and has made it his mission to help his fellow man with the hope of inspiring others to jump aboard.
