Hello, my name is Justin Lee. I am currently attending Tilton School in New Hampshire where I am a goaltender on the Varsity A team. I am repeat Junior and I am taking multiple AP courses. Prior to this I was attending Northview Heights Secondary School (Grades 9, 10 and 11) in Toronto where I was enrolled in two specialty programs, Honors Math Science and Technology (HMST) and Academic Program for Gifted Athletes (APGA). The HMST program offers me a higher level of education by providing an enriched curriculum in the areas of math, science and technology. The APGA program is open only to elite athletes and is designed to allow us to maintain academic excellence while pursuing our training and competition. More information on both these programs can be found on our school website www.northviewheights.ca.
While playing hockey at a high level for many years, I believe education is an important ingredient in the development of me as a person. My current GPA is 3.33. In grade 10, I achieved a 91% average; however, my core subject marks were even higher. In Grade 11, I am achieving a 90%+ average while juggling the rigors of AAA hockey. On December 2, 2017, I completed my first run at the SAT and scored a 1260/1600. My PSAT score was 1300/1520.
My determination to play at the highest competitive collegiate hockey has grown stronger with each passing year. NCAA itself has always been a goal for me. It is a good foundation to further develop me as a goaltender supported by an educational program. Through my early years of development, being blessed with strong family support and coaching has allowed me to be successful both on and off the ice.
I am known to be a very coachable person. The goals I set for myself at every practice and games are to stay mentally strong, work on my weaknesses and battle hard to win. I keep pushing myself even if I don’t think I can give anymore. I take the same approach with my academics. I am very athletic and take a very calm and patient approach to my game. I strongly believe in playing for the jersey and not for the name on the back. Success is a team effort and there is no room for “me” in a team sport. I will continue to push myself harder than ever and always look to improve my game each time.
I hope I have the opportunity to meet you in the near future. Please feel free to go to my YouTube channel to see more videos of my journey;
