Out of Brooklyn we bring you Lisa Evanson!
Lisa’s family is from Trinidad, We asked what her heritage means to her:
“—It’s about community, family, determination, perseverance, and creating paths where there are none, or when you can’t even see could be next.”
Lisa is a Bank Examiner and considers it the most fascinating job she ever had.
“It’s allowed me to develop myself professionally, push me out of my comfort zone, introduce me to amazing people, and have input in the safety and soundness of the financial markets.”
This adrenaline junky fell in love with boxing in 2010: “It was active, challenging, and I got an adrenaline rush when I got into the ring! It’s great when I get to fight; even better when it’s for charity.”
Heroes: Serena Williams and Angela Bassett. “They encourage me to be strong, look strong, and be confident. Growing up I was teased for “looking like a man”, but when I saw women like Angela and Serena, I knew it was okay to be proud of the body God blessed me with!”
