Transcript of Dr. Ben Carson

Ben Carson's mother, Sonya, allowed him to watch only two TV shows a week. Ben also had to read two books per week. When he was done with the books, he had to write a book report about it! Sonya also made her sons, Ben and Curtis Carson, decide themselves on their responsibilities. But the only thing that bothered Sonya was that she couldn't read! She was determined that that would never happen to her sons. Sonya worked tirelessly for Ben and Curtis. To make sure Ben knew and was 100% sure he could do anything, Sonya always said to him, "You can do anything anyone else could do, but you can do it better!
