Dr. Ben Carson

By: Sarah Dellacroce


Benjamin Solomon Carson was born on September 18th, 1951 and is currently 64 years old. He became an Author, a Surgeon, and a Philanthropist. Ben Carson said this when he was working to overcome anger issues, " I came to realize that if people could make me angry, they could control me. Why should I give someone else such power over my life?" Ben Carson was very poor as a child and his parents were divorced. Even in this situation, his mother taught him that anything is possible. The most interesting thing I learned about him was that when he was a child, he thought he was the dumbest kid in class, but when he grew up he became a great surgeon.
