I am a sore loser. From a young age, I have always been competitive in both my academics as well as my athletics. I would often be found playing street hockey with my older brother, who by the way is 6'6", and his friends for hours on end. As I continued to age, my competitive attitude developed with me, pushing me to participate in more sports and pushing me to learn how to become a solid teammate. This spirit soon transferred over into my schoolwork. The idea of competition has always forced me to rise to the occasion and pushed me to give my best effort. By the time I made it to high school, it was a large goal of mine to take the most difficult courses offered while simultaneously being part of a team. Field hockey ended up being the perfect fit for me. I entered the team being slightly nervous to try a new sport, since I played ice hockey all of my life. However, I soon found a deep love and passion for the game. I love learning and developing my skills on the field as well as working with new people off of the field. Not only do I not like losing, but I don't like the idea of not pushing myself; I am a competitor at heart.
