Andrea Carter is an award-winning poet and writer with a love for loving.
Devoid of love for many, many years, she learned to become the love she was searching for all of her life. She has experienced and overcome a plethora of obstacles from childhood molestation, teenage pregnancy, siblings murdered, and abject poverty before even graduating from high school.
Andrea was born in Gary, Indiana to a sharecropper. For twenty years she taught in urban schools throughout the nation. Her poetry was recognized at the University of Wisconson-LaCrosse Multi-Cultural Conference. She opened schools for at-risk youth. In 2009, she was runner-up for the Atlanta Business League Success Against All Odds Leadership Award.
A Ronald McNair Scholar, today Andrea is a first-generation Doctoral student studying Global Leadership and change.
