DREAM TEEN Magazine - - Editor's Notes - By Tar­ran Carter CEO & Leo Carter Pres­i­dent of DREAM TEEN Mag­a­zine


As we sum up 2016 and move into 2017, we thank God for His guid­ance and di­rec­tion. We could not have done it with­out Him. He has paved the way to an amaz­ing fu­ture.

ll of the tal­ents that DREAM TEEN Mag­a­zine (DTM) has fea­tured this year are on their way to ex­pe­ri­ence op­por­tu­ni­ties that they would have never imag­ined. They have al­ready be­gun to sur­pass what most would say is impossible or only a dream.

Well, dreams do come true and it is im­por­tant to dream fear­lessly.

Our move to At­lanta this year has opened doors and op­por­tu­ni­ties for the pub­li­ca­tion. On Au­gust 23rd, the pres­i­dent of DTM, Leo Carter and I launched DREAM TEEN In­spi­ra­tional Talk Ra­dio. We were able to make sev­eral con­nec­tions that will present other projects in the near fu­ture. Ad­di­tion­ally, we have a new ju­nior re­porter, An­drew Cul­breath and a new con­trib­u­tor, Bella Tip­ping from Aus­tralia; she writes for the travel col­umn.

To name a few, tal­ent Brooke Baker in­terned with Ebony mag­a­zine dur­ing the sum­mer and ac­tu­ally made their sum­mer is­sue. Brea Baker is now liv­ing in Sin­ga­pore where she has be­gun her ca­reer. Jor­dan & Joelle, af­ter grad­u­at­ing from col­lege, now writes for a ma­jor pub­li­ca­tion, Me­dia Planet USA. Dur­ing their time with Me­di­a­planet, their ad­vo­cacy and aware­ness cam­paigns have been pub­lished in ma­jor publi­ca­tions such as USA To­day, LA Times, Chicago Tri­bune, and San Fran­cisco Chron­i­cle and has al­lowed them to work with celebri­ties and key opin­ion lead­ers such as Sofia Ver­gara, NAACP, Amer­i­can Di­a­betes Foun­da­tion, Com­mon, Lucy Liu, and many more! Ad­di­tion­aly, their new book was re­leased, “Twin Tales.” DTM’s pho­tog­ra­pher Rickey Allen con­tin­ues to per­fect his tal­ent and stays busy in his pro­fes­sion. We also have a new pho­tog­ra­pher, Alexan­dria Har­ris who han­dles the Penn­syl­va­nia and Mary­land area.

This has been an amaz­ing year and it’s just go­ing to get bet­ter!
