Attending a 4-year college and pursuing higher education has always been my goal. I've been researching colleges since I was a 6th grader. I love learning, I love traveling, I love playing hockey, and I love fishing.
I'm from a very small town in Oregon where most don't know anything about hockey. Since I was 8 years old, I've been traveling at least 1.5 hours to the rink one-way 3-6 days a week. This year, I moved 700 miles from home to continue working towards my hockey goals. I understand sacrifice and hard work. I have the utmost respect for my coaches, teammates, opponents, and the game.
