My name is Tanisleigh Christine Evans and I am the second sibling of four children. During the past 17 years of my life I have done many different things.
Being from a ranch/rodeo family I started riding before I could walk and have continued participating in local gymkhanas, BC High School Rodeo and even the BC Rodeo Association. I enjoy the many opportunities that I have been able to partake in.
Among my many activities, I competed with the Cariboo Gymnastics Club, was a member of the bowling league with my family, and participated in Williams Lake minor hockey.
When I was in Grade 8, I joined the rugby team and enjoyed the action until an injury prevented my return.
Lastly, my granny lives on the lake so I love all the water sports that I am able to participate in.
I enjoy working but due to developing epilepsy I had to stop.
The first couple of months were very scary and hard to understand.
But with the help of my family and medical system I have a ton of support, and have not had a seizure since the first one.
I am currently finishing my Grade 12 year and after a week of work experience in a physiotherapy environment I realized my goal for the future is to attend UBC to pursue a career in rehabilitation physiotherapy.
With the sudden changes that occurred in my life I have realized to live every day to the fullest.
