Michael Evans Jr. is an eleven-year-old boy from New York. He is the oldest of his siblings, with a ten-year-old brother and a seven-year-old sister—both published authors as well in the genre of self-development and mindfulness for children. Michael is homeschooled. Prior to homeschool, Michael attended both public and private schools. As a freethinker, he struggled against becoming a carbon copy of his teacher’s ideals. As a lacrosse player, he was compelled to take on the role of the player with the least amount of talent because that was how his coach made him feel. His school grades were below average because his teachers thought his handwriting was messy, and he had a hard time staring at a chalkboard all day. Once Michael was removed from the system, he began to make his own path in life without a personal history to live up to. He now studies literature, is a talented writer, and plays at a level equal to the top players on his lacrosse teams. In his free time, you can find Michael playing lacrosse with his friends, swimming in the ocean with his family, contemplating the works of Fulke Greville or Christopher Hitchens, and watching Family Guy.
