Evelyn is from the Lower East Side, but she currently lives in Forest Hills, Queens. Her mother is from Trinidad and Tobago. A suggestion from her photography teacher brought Evelyn to Youth Insights. She likes to do a lot of personal writing and thought that YI Writers would help her improve her writing and explore new techniques. Art is therapeutic to Evelyn—she uses it to express herself and to explore. Photography and writing are her main interests. In the future, Evelyn would like to become an actress, a photographer, and a director. If she could meet anyone in the world, it would have to be both Aaliyah and Pharrell Williams. These are the people Evelyn idolizes because of the type of work they do as artists.
