Oscar worthy Mentors on Find Your Grind
On Sunday, March 12, Ruth E. Carter made history: The costume designer behind the “Black Panther” films became the first Black woman to win two Oscars.
Carter took home Best Costume Design Sunday night at the 95th Academy Awards for the Marvel sequel “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” Carter also won in 2018 for “Black Panther,” which made her the first African American to win in the category.
A Find Your Grind mentor since 2019, Ruth Carter represents the Creator, Maker, and Entertainer lifestyles. Over 20,000 students have been recommended to learn from her and her career journey through our personalized mentor experience this year. Check out an example of what students experience through the Ruth E. Carter Mentor Badge:
“I think it’s important for dreamers to know that you can be successful and it starts with your dream. And it’s that dreaming that just makes everything blossom into the rest of your life. I don’t want them to dream as if they are going to be something in the future. I want them to dream about who they are right now and empower themselves with that dream.”
– Ruth E. Carter , Find Your Grind Mentor
