Carter feels that there is a disconnect between the professionals who are writing the books about managing anxiety and the teenagers who need the information and help. So as a teenager he put pen to paper and wrote his own book, “Conquering Fear” that talks directly to students and provides tips for managing anxiety.
Carter is now 19 and a student at Georgetown University studying business despite experiencing acute anxiety his entire life. In his short, helpful guide, Carter shares the candid ups and downs of his personal journey, how he got the help he needed, and six pivotal tips that have helped him manage his symptoms and achieve his goals. Living with anxiety is not an easy road. But through Conquering Fear, Carter wants other young people to know that with hard work and support, it is possible to lead your best life.
