If you've made it this far, I really appreciate it!
Who am I?
My name is Brent Evans. I Grew up in Washington State in tiny town. I think I'm a pretty average person. I began wrestling at a very young age and maintained that, whether competing or coaching, practically throughout my entire life. Wrestling is something that brought me challenges and goals to pursue that helped me to develop drive and work ethic to become the person I am today.
After high school, I worked for about 5 years before returning to school to study history education. Now, many years later, I have a bachelors in history/social studies education, elementary education, and a masters in English with an emphasis in education.
Currently, I am a teacher in China. Being from a tiny town, teaching in China has been an amazing experience unlike anything I ever expected.
Day to day, I am much like anyone else. I work, try to stay active as well as practicing martial arts, and I spend time with my wonderful girl friend, who I also met while in China!
Throughout my life, I have considered myself to be a reasonable mediator who is always willing to talk things out.
Whether it be negotiating peace between conflicting family members to now, discussing the many varying political perspectives I encounter.
But, I have ran into a problem. Over the years, the more technology that we have allowed into our lives, the more disconnected we become with others, especially with those who we disagree.
This leads us to disassociating with them, while putting labels on them, instead of having open conversations to understand each other and finding where we have common ground.
I believe this type of behavior is destructive to the American society and does nothing more than drive a deeper wedge between people.
It is my hope that I can bridge this gap, gain knowledge about multiple perspectives and ideologies, as well as give my honest insight on where many of our politicians and media members have steered us wrong.
