I have learned and grown so much because of my love of hockey. I have the perseverance to play hard and never give up. I have the ability to show my leadership skills and lead by example. I have experienced the joys of winning and how to lose with grace. I have also been cut from a top tier team, and I never quit trying. As a freshman in high school, I made the varsity team and was even in the starting lineup as a left defenseman.
I am thankful for my parents and coaches that have never given up on me. They have helped me get better at hockey and in school. I strive to get good grades so I am able to play the game I love and passionate about.
My support system and my great characteristics will make me a great hockey player on any team and in their locker room.
