A talent as defined by Dictionary Dot Com as a special natural ability or aptitude. It also goes one to define the word talent as having an ability or capacity for achievement or success. In providing this definition, it would be useful to note, that St. Mark’s people are very talented people or people with an exceptional capacity to achieve.
