We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us. Anonymous


Hello, my name is Evelyn Parson and Im currently 17 years old, attending St. Croix Falls Highschool. I was born in Wyoming, Minnesota on June 30th, 2002, and I have a younger brother named Connor. My father served in the Gulf War in 1990-1991 and later died of pancreatic cancer in November 2003. Ever since then it’s just been the three of us and my dog Daisy living in St. Croix Falls township until my mom got married to my stepdad in the spring of 2015. Some hobbies of mine include writing, reading, watching/analyzing movies, cartoons and TV shows, swimming, and music.

I plan to attend UW-River Falls in fall 2020, and I’m thinking of majoring in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) and minoring in either Stage And Screen Arts or English. My dream is to travel the whole world while discovering new things and helping people. I eventually would like to live in the Gyeonggi-do province in South Korea for a couple of years and teach english to adults as well as elementary age students. Family, music and writing are the things that inspire me the most and I hope to incorporate those values into my teaching and into my future endeavors.

With age, comes wisdom. With travel, comes understanding. Sandra Lake
