Who is Carson Pickett?
Carson Pickett was born on September 15, 1993 as an American football defender and currently plays for the NWSL team Orlando Pride.
Early years of her life
Pickett grew up in Fleming Island on the northeast coast of Florida near Jacksonville, attended St. Johns Country Day School and won three state-championships with the school soccer-team.
In 2012, she was named Gatorade Girls Soccer-Player of the Year for the State of Florida and Florida Coast-Union First Coast Player of the Year in 2012.
Pickett was born without a left-forearm and hand, a fact that many reporters have highlighted throughout her career.
Her condition was the subject of a viral-Instagram photo during the 2019 season, which showed her fist punching a 2-year-old boy who was also born without a left forearm and hand.
similarity with one-year-old fan goes viral
Not all of them are raised the same. We all have variations of our own. I’ve got a strange left rib from my lower chest that makes it look like a lump. Once my wife saw it she couldn’t help but wonder and ask me about it for the first time.
It’s not a shortcoming. It’s genes alone. My mom, and my younger uncle, have it. We’ve picked up something from previous generations. But I’m not at all ashamed of it.
And so this one-year-old is not embarrassed to be born with a partially developed hand. His name is Joseph Tidd, 22 months old. His parents are doing their best to teach him not to be afraid of being different from being raised.
And with what happened later, he is probably going to have a life full of motivation and a great example to look upon if times get harder when he grows up. Carson Pickett is a football player who was born with the same deficiency. And despite having a partially formed arm, she lives her life at her fullest.
Joseph’s parent takes him to see a match where Carson Pickett was playing for Orlando Pride. The football player came to greet him after the match near the one-year-old baby and had an arm bump with him. The moment was captured by his parents and posted on Instagram, and now the image has gone viral. Carson was a great role model for Joseph, and she showed him that you can always make something better for yourself, despite the cards you are given.
