Despite a rough start in life with the childhood struggles his family had his mother taught the boys to work hard and never give up.
At first Ben struggled in school. He got poor grades, being at the bottom of his class. He also developed a temper which got him in trouble, but he learned to rise above this. During his early education he attended a school that was very competitive. The other kids would pick on him and call him dummy. Ben started reading a lot and he really enjoyed it. he started to get self-confidence from this knowledge he was gaining. They discovered in 5th grade that he needed glasses. Once he started gaining knowledge and had his glasses his grades started to improve and the taunting stopped. However even with the respect of other kids and better grades he developed a bad temper. He overcame the struggle with grades but now needed to overcome his temper. Carson remembers a time he tried to hit his mother over the head with a hammer just because they did not agree on what he should wear to an interview with the academy of Achievement. He also recalls an argument with a classmate over a locker where he cut the boy’s head. He also tells about the terrifying incident when he got mad at a friend for simply changing the radio station and he stabbed the boy and he almost died. This made him realize his temper and the need to change. He started praying to God to help him deal with his anger problem. When he read the book of proverbs in the bible “Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.” This phrase in the bible helped him to realize he could control his anger instead of allowing it to control him. Once he got control of his anger he began to focus more on improving his life through education. He studied hard and got good grades and even was the go to person for classmates that needed help. He went from bottom of the class to being top of the class. Not only did he overcome temper, poor grades and bullying but he also was inspiration to himself and others. While Ben Carson did struggle in school, with the help of his mother he had determination to work harder and succeed.
After graduating from Yale University in 1973, Ben entered into the school of Michigan to become a neurosurgeon. He eventually landed a position at John Hopkins University. All his hard work payed off and he ended up getting a scholarship to go to Yale University. At Yale he studied psychology and also met the women he would eventually marry and have children with named Lacena Rustin. He graduated from Yale University in 1973 with a bachelor of arts degree in psychology. Then he enrolled in the school of medicine at the University of Michigan because he decided to become a neurosurgeon rather than a psychologist. While attending the school of medicine he married Lacena in 1975. He graduated from the University of Michigan with his medical degree in 1977. He and his wife moved to Maryland and became a...
