Sydney Carter


Basketball coach Sydney Carter is always prepared to adorn the courts in flair. Her professional brand has been defined by the way she combines her job and personal style. She faced severe response from a barrage of haters in February 2022 after posting her game-day attire. It included a pair of heels, bright pink vinyl leggings, and a white turtleneck.

The image gained widespread traction on social media, inspiring positive, critical, and even even sexist remarks.

“I just think that everybody has to understand somebody is always going to have something to say whether it’s negative or positive,” she told slamonline. “I think they picked the right one when they picked me because I know my worth and I’m very confident. People need to remember that as women, we are strong individuals, and men or anybody else are always going to feel like their opinion should matter,” she said.

The criticisms of her dress don’t bother Carter; she emphasizes that she simply has a different sense of style than most people.

The Chicago Sky selected Carter in the third round of the WNBA draft in 2012, and Carter went on to accomplish remarkable things. Her junior year saw her play for Texas A&M University, where she contributed to the team’s NCAA championship victory. She later joined the Connecticut Sun after signing a training camp contract with the Atlanta Dream.

She also performed for seven years abroad, primarily in Israel and Latvia. She won the Latvian/Estonian Championship three times and the Eastern European League title as well.

Unfortunately, a meniscus tear caused her playing career to stop. She eventually began a new chapter when she relaunched her career as a basketball coach with her former team, Texas A&M University, while remaining upbeat and taking advantage of the opportunities in her life.

The first love of Carter was not basketball. Since she was in elementary school, she has had a love of fashion. Though she later developed a passion for basketball, her interest in fashion never wavered. Her mother once considered the idea of getting her to model.

Sydney continues to remain focused at work and ignores her detractors in order to constantly put her best foot forward. She hopes that her self-assurance and tenacity will motivate upcoming generations to be themselves and pursue their passions.
