Personal Statement

I fell in love with hockey the moment I stepped on the ice at six years old. Thirteen years later I am still learning from it and getting better. Some of the lessons I most value are the importance of patience and that failure leads to success. I am patient, whether waiting out a shooter or training every day to ultimately build myself into the best possible goaltender. I've balanced hockey practice, lacrosse practice, a job, coaching 12u goalies, and multiple AP classes.  Whether on the ice or in the classroom, I apply myself 100% and pursue my goals relentlessly.

I learned self-sufficiency during a month long foreign exchange trip to Santa Cruz, Bolivia. I was thirteen years old. I lived with a family I had never met before, attended a Bolivian school, and had to speak Spanish almost exclusively. I have been a multi-sport athlete from the time I began competing through my time in high school. I played both lacrosse, for which I was a captain, and hockey during my high school years. I love my teammates as brothers, and work to push them, as they push me, to be the best players they can be. I lay everything on the line for my team, and commit myself to pursuing victory with a vengeance. 

I am incredibly grateful to my family, who have supported me every step of the way. Though I love and dedicate myself to hockey, I recognize that academics are equally important. I have worked to achieve honor roll every quarter in high school through my graduation. I want to pursue both hockey and education at the highest collegiate level I possibly can.
