Part of our mission at Carbon World Health is to inspire our clients to be the best version of themselves. And in that vein, we are excited to launch the Carbon World Health "Why Not Me? Speaker Series.The series will take place on a quarterly basis and will feature extraordinary individuals and athletes who will share their personal stories of perseverance in an intimate setting.
Caylin's gripping speech will give you a up-close and personal look into how he made his remarkable journey from his gang-ridden childhood neighborhood of South Central Los Angeles, to becoming a football star, to earning the honor of becoming a Rhodes Scholar.
All ticket sales proceeds from "Why Not Me?" events will go to the Why Not Me Scholarship Fund which will create two scholarships each year:
1) The Student Athlete Scholarship will be awarded on an annual basis to a student-athlete who demonstrates strong academic performance. The student must maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher and will participate in an intercollegiate sport.
2) The Local Community School Scholarship will be awarded on an annual basis to a local school to fund and encourage fitness- and health-related activities.

Our inaugural event is titled “It Won't Make Sense On Paper" and will feature Caylin Moore who will share his unlikely journey from childhood in South Central Los Angeles to becoming a Rhodes Scholar.
Here is Caylin's bio:
Caylin L. Moore is a senior at Texas Christian University majoring in economics, minoring in mathematics and sociology. He comes from Compton/Carson, California where he overcame poverty, gang violence and his father's incarceration who is, serving a life sentence, to become a campus leader and Division One football player at Marist College and then TCU.
Caylin was selected to the Fulbright Summer Institute to study the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade at the University of Bristol in 2014, where he studied abroad in England. The next year he was chosen to attend the PPIA Junior Summer Institute at Princeton University, before beginning school at TCU in the fall of 2015. After working as a janitor, Caylin Moore played strong safety at TCU in 2015 and 2016. He immediately found a way to impact the football team and the community upon arrival, and he never looked back.
He is the founder and president of “S.P.A.R.K.,” a youth outreach organization of student-athletes who encourage opportunity for youth to attend college, as well as a past volunteer Middle School teacher for the Children’s Defense Fund. As a result of earning the 2017 Rhodes Scholarship, Caylin will go on to Oxford University in the UK to earn an M.Sc. in Sociology and then a Masters of Public Policy beginning in October of 2017.
