Eevee is an 11-year-old middle schooler who transitioned when she was 8, and immediately took on a leadership role in her school, holding a Q&A for fellow students and creating a social media campaign for the school’s Design Challenge. She was named a finalist and took to the stage with a PowerPoint presentation on Gender Equality and anti-bullying. Having skipped 3rd grade, Eevee is one of the youngest students in her class, but her love for knowledge and her growth mindset earned her a spot on the high honors roll.
Eevee began appearing in theater productions when she was 4, but she was 9 when she tried stand-up comedy for the first time and discovered her love for performing. Later that year her monologue audition earned her the role of a supporting character in Letters to Lucerne and she also performed a monologue as Sonia Sotomayor for her school’s Women’s History Month assembly.
She loves reading both fiction and nonfiction books, but she especially likes the “To All the Boys I Loved Before” and “Hunger Games” series. Her favorite stand-alone books are Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and The Hate U Give.
An avid athlete, Eevee competed on her school’s volleyball and basketball teams, participated in Girls On the Run and woke up with enthusiasm at 5:00 am to train with her school’s swim program. She loves to spend time with her friends and family, especially hiking, picnics and playing card games like Unstable Unicorns and Exploding Kittens. Always looking for ways to improve the world for all living creatures, she recently embraced a plant-based diet and does her best to be vegan.
