Ever since I was five years old, all I wanted to do is play hockey. I love the sport, I love the people around the sport and the great atmosphere. I strive for excellence on the ice and in the classroom. I'm an honors student and all my hard work has produced a strong academic record, which I hope to carry through high school and into college. What makes me different from other aspiring athletes is my drive and motivation to always improve as a hockey player, student and especially a person. When I'm not on the ice or in the classroom, I enjoy socializing with my friends and competing in a variety of activities.
