Hello! I am excited to share these photos of a very dear friend of mine, Evelyn. Evelyn has an insane passion for sports. Her dream: to become a sports reporter.
I don’t know anyone that works harder at following her dream. Her faith and passion are inspiring to say the least.
I don’t know anybody that wants it more, nor works harder at it; despite minor set backs. She is constantly networking and updating her reporter’s reel, yet manages to remain insanely committed to her family and faith.
Evelyn and I met in college. Both broadcast journalism majors, we clicked. We were both parents and slightly older than our peers. We definitely helped each other out then, and continue to do so now.
Evelyn worked and attended school full time. Sound common? Maybe. Did I mention she’s also a mother of two AND a wife?! Oh, and of course her kids were HEAVILY involved in sports (and still are).
I know. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Needless to say, we’ve been friends ever since. 😉
We went on to intern for ABC together-Evelyn in the sports department of course. Currently I have the pleasure of working with her.
I want to add that if it weren’t for Evelyn, I may not have landed my day job. I am so grateful to have her as a friend and true supporter!
Today, Evelyn works at Fox Sports. She’s so close to finally achieving her dream and continues to work at turning her dream into a reality. I truly believe that one day I will be referring to her as: Evelyn Gomez, Sports Reporter.
Below are just a few head shot photos from our impromptu photography session. I think her personality comes through in the pictures. She is a guy’s gal: tough enough to hang with the guys, yet sweet enough to shop with the girls! 😉 We had way too much fun doing this!
Hope you enjoy!
