"I can do anything. And so can you."
The original member of the #BDSquad, Carter is fun and mischievous and has strong goals for a future as a doctor or engineer. Carter loves all things STEM, and is always problem-solving and discovering how things are made and what to do to improve them.
After school, he loves to hang out in the Science Club, and lately has been working on creating a new video game app inspired by ROBLOX. His buddy CJ, another member of the #BDSquad, is working with him on this project. Together they are learning teamwork and collaboration – both important skills in life and work.
Carter is working hard in school in order to get a science and engineering scholarship to the college of his choice so he can continue doing what he loves, and inspire others to do the same. He knows a college degree is necessary to get to where he wants to be to do what he loves, and despite some challenges along the way, he is committed to getting there through setting and achieving new goals each year.
In the #BDSquad, representation matters. Carter and his friends are excited to share their stories of accomplishments, adventures, home-runs and tips on how to succeed on the journey to college weekly here at 1954™.

WE’RE WORKING TO EMPOWER STUDENTS OF COLOR.
It’s our goal to provide gear to students that encourages them to be their best. We do this by producing bags, totes and organization tools with fun characters representing a broad range of melanin skin tones. Our products are made to be sturdy so kids can count on them to work. And we commit to giving students in less-advantaged schools free gear with the help of local community organizations.
