Even St. Julien
Teen Business Owner, Anchor/Reporter, Evangelist, and Singer
Even St. Julien is a 16-year-old from Mire, Louisiana. Known for being a jack of all trades, Even is business owner and social media personality, working in multiple fields; evangelism, news reporting, singing, and baking.
Just at the age of 9, Even St. Julien was making waves on social media as a young news reporter. After discovering a profound love for journalism, Even established EVEN News: Acadiana's News Outlet, reporting the news about his hometown from his bedroom in 2016. Recognized by and featured on various television channels (KATC, KLFY, and FOX 15 KADN), radio stations (Freedom 106.7, 94.5 KSMB), and newspapers (The Advocate), many people across southern Louisiana began to follow Even, trusting his reports. Even has covered many major headlines, some being Hurricanes Delta, Barry, Laura, and Ida, Euthanasia Crisis at the Crowley Animal Shelter, 2018 Major Freeze in Acadiana, and more. In 2018, Even scored an interview with Congressman Clay Higgins, discussing Higgins' early life, and new life as a US Representative. During Hurricane Delta coverage, in 2020, Even met The Weather Channel celebrity meteorologist, Jim Cantore.
Still today, Even is reporting the news time-to-time in Acadiana through his news station, EVEN News: Acadiana's News Outlet, and he anchors/hosts his social media show, EVEN Edition.
Like his love for journalism, Even developed love for God at a young age. Attending his local church in Mire, he began to want to know more about God and His powerful sovereignty. Quite recently is when he realized he has a passion for evangelism, spreading/teaching the Word of God, especially to his generation. Even once stated that he believes that it is "vitally important to help [his] fellow teens learn more about God and grow a relationship with Him." He said, "It is so important that all teens know who God is and has a relationship with Him because it is for the good of themselves and for our society. It's no secret that today's society seems to be going downhill, and that is why I believe the teaching of the Word of God is so important because that alone can, and will, help greatly to make positive change in our society." In 2021, Even founded Chosen Generation Teen Ministries. In 2022, Allie Mire joined as a co-leader. Together, they launched Chosen Gen, a ministries dedicated to guiding teens into a relationship with Jesus, spreading hope, love, joy, and faith.
In the fall of 2022, Even embarked on a new journey involving baking cookies. He grew a passion for baking and began baking non-stop, working to create the "perfect cookie." He then opened up Deuce's Cookies. Now, Even is not only known for his faith and love for journalism, yet he is known as the local cookie dude - having ran his own mobile cookie company successfully for over a year. Deuce's Cookies specializes in thick, gooey, and rich cookies - quickly becoming one of Acadiana's favorite local sweet treats. In 2024, Even and his family look forward to embarking on a new journey of running a brick-and-mortar cookie company.
