Carter Ledford

Carter Ledford is a 16, soon-to-be 17-year-old writer and athlete from Cincinnati, Ohio. He’s a multiple sport athlete who grew up playing soccer and basketball. In high school he played football for a year. He currently wrestles and trains muay Thai kickboxing. It’s also his first year in journalism. Carter grew up in a one-parent household, constantly going from his mother’s house to his grandmother’s during his childhood. During this period of adolescence, he watched his mother and grandmother struggle to raise him. This would later prove to be a negative experience, however, a positive outcome. It would instill a value of hard work in him, later influencing his writing. Carter likes to write about social issues, music, and clothes. In his free time, he loves music, especially artists such as Frank Ocean, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, and many more. Fashion, art, and music have all broadened Carter’s dimension as a writer, often trying to incorporate creativity and deep, thought-provoking, deliveries into every sentence.
