Personal Statement

Moving to Chicago in the 7th grade was both challenging and exciting for me. I started playing hockey as a Squirt Major in Portland Oregon, so I had played hockey before we moved, but it definitely took some time to adjust to the much larger hockey environment.  The opportunities were more available, but being an "unknown entity" did present its own challenge.  I found that I needed to stand out to coaches so I took every chance I could get to work off ice with a trainer, extra ice with a goalie coach, as well as tune up camps on and off season.  

I have experienced my share of setbacks, and I was able to take each disappointment and turn it in to a growth opportunity.  I learned that there are many things I can't control, but I can control how I respond. I feel that my background in martial arts introduced me to the values of teamwork, perseverance,  and integrity which I was was able to translate into my hockey as well as my academics and life.

Working with the sled hockey team as a student coach, I have a new perspective and outlook on challenges as I deeply respect all those athletes and their effort they bring every time they are on the ice. I am so grateful to be able to work with them. 

I am fortunate enough to keep playing hockey each season and I believe that I am constantly developing and growing. I am committed to put in the hard work each year so that I can reach my best.
