Ms. Namita Nayyar: Who has been your biggest influence and motivation in your path to success?
Ms. Michelle Carter: My biggest influencer and motivators has been my parents. My parents are hard on me because they can see great things in me. I believe that everybody at some point in their life, need somebody to help stretch their imagination and vision. Because my parents believed in me and saw something in me that I wasn’t able to see in myself, I can push myself and keep working hard. I believe and trust my parents.They have influenced me and motivated me to reached my full potential.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You are also a certified Professional Makeup Artist with a passion for beauty. You have uniquely blended your passion for throwing and beauty, forming the name “ShotDiva”. Tell us more about this endeavor of your?
Ms. Michelle Carter: I’ve always been a Diva, but I actually thought of calling myself ShotDiva when I was at the University of Texas. I was the only thrower on the team. All of the runners would call themselves track diva. Since I wasn’t a trackdiva I don’t want to be field diva so I called myself ShotDiva because I throw the shot and I’m a Diva. It has stuck with me ever since.
My passion of beauty has been there ever since I was little girl I’ve always wanted to wear make up nails and wigs and I play dress up like crazy. I wasn’t allowed to wear make up outside the house but inside the house I was going to have on my snap on nails, eye shadow and red lipstick and I love it. When I made my first Olympic team in 2008 after the competition I was getting dressed to go out, I had on dress and heels.
When I walked out and saw everyone else in jeans I said I thought we were going out. They said we are and said like that? Lol… So the next time we went out people asked me to help with their makeup and then a couple of more. Someone asked me have I ever thought about becoming a makeup artist, I said no. She said that I should look it up. As soon as I came home after the Olympics I decide to take classes in the fall to learn how to do makeup because I enjoyed doing it. Growing up I used to paint and draw so this is almost like an extension of painting and drawing but it’s on someone’s face.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: With exceptional hard work you are credited with all your achievements. One of your favorite scriptures, Philippians 4:13, states, “I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.” You are a committed Christian. Do you believe that does the hand of Providence (Supreme Being) played a role in your success?
Ms. Michelle Carter: Yes I do believe that The Lord has everything to do with what I do. He has given me these gifts and talents not for myself but to share with others His gift of love.
