“I’ve known since I was young that I wanted to do physics, It started when I was watching ‘Bill Nye the Science Guy’ when I was home-schooled,” Carson told Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

”There was never any question about it, no going back and forth with things like ‘I want to be a doctor’ to ‘I want to be a physicist,’ to ‘I want to be a firefighter,” he added.

Carson said despite studying with people older than him, he made sure to always be on his best behavior and they always treated him right. “Everyone has always treated me as a peer. There have, of course, been outliers here and there, but for the most part, I’ve just been treated as another student,” he said.

“So really, just kind of digging into that rabbit hole and figuring out what’s going on behind equations or systems or whatever it is you’re trying to solve,’ he added.

Carson mentioned that he hopes to earn his Doctorate degree in Quantum Physics and work as a researcher, either with a university or in the private sector. He also added if he were to work at a university, he would like to teach.
