About Tessa McEvoy
Tessa McEvoy is a high school freshman. Like children with dyslexia, she has struggled with her own challenges. She had a severe speech impairment that prevented her from speaking until age four and affects her articulation to this day. While her speech was delayed, her artistic interests and talents emerged early. Drawing and creating held her interest for hours even as a preschooler. She enjoys cartooning and has a small origami business. She has won recognition for her art. Her origami earrings have been carried in several stores, including the gift shop at the Denver Art Museum. You can follow her artwork on her Instagram account, World_of_Weirdo. You can find out more about her origami at www.origamibytessa.com. Despite all of her artistic talents, she still wants to be an astronaut.
