In addition to her studies, Evelyn currently serves as the Head of US and International University Admissions for King Edward's School Birmingham, and previously held the same role for Sevenoaks School in Kent, UK.

In recognition of her “excellence in teaching and mentorship” Evelyn was awarded the 2021 University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award. At King's College London, Evelyn received the 2018 Special Merit Award for “an outstanding contribution in shaping the education and student experience as an elected student representative”. In 2020, Evelyn had the privilege of serving on the Faculty of the Cambridge University (Homerton College) Changemakers Leadership Conference, presenting a session on “Accelerating Productivity”, and in 2021, she produced a motivational video for the UK youth charity, Form the Future. 

 

Evelyn has additional experience working in law at Shearman & Sterling, LLP, in marketing at IBM, and in charitable development. She also interned at the United Nations Committee for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. During the Serbo Croatian War, Evelyn ran Red Cross children's programs for Kosovar refugees upon their arrival in Ft.
