Jordan's Dragon




Publication Excerpt

At bed time Jordan leans over the railing of the top bunk and says to his brother,

"Want to know a secret?"
"Yeah," says Brent.
"My bike is actually a dragon."
"It is?" asks Brent.
"Yep. And do you know what I named it?"
"What?"
"Puff, like in the song that mommy sings to us."
"Jordan, can I have a dragon too?" Jordan thinks about this.
"When you're older, I guess. Good night."
"Good night."

How did Evergreen help you in your career?

Evergreen challenged me: to persist at thinking creatively; to consider the rest of the world and to continuously care for its well-being even though there are some places I may never get to visit and people I may never get to meet; and to do things for myself whenever possible. Also, I participated in a Children's Literature program during my last year and the materials we covered fed into my enthusiasm for stories.
