Evelyn Evelyn is from Alaska. She is doing well in school and is learning American Sign Language during the summer. She is also volunteering at a Deaf elementary school. And in December 2017, a new best friend bounded into her life in the form of a hearing dog, who, besides being a loving companion, helps alert her to important sounds like doorbells, smoke alarms, ringing cellphones, and alarm clocks.

After establishing residency in Washington, she developed a video about hearing loss called "Like the Mic" and created a public service announcement of her own to promote hearing loss awareness.

She lost her hearing from meningitis as a younger child. Despite that, she maintained a 4.0 grade point average in high school while completing it in three years. In order to help her family make ends meet, she worked while going through school, as well as volunteered in various community organizations. A member of the national honor society, she also participated in sports, robotics, and drama extracurricular activities.

Evelyn has a cochlear implant, which she received after recovering from meningitis. Her letters attest to her excellence in many areas, with comments like, "her strength of character, academic performance, and character are of the highest quality."
