Personal Statement

I fell in love with hockey the moment I stepped on the ice at six years old. Eleven 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 struggle and failure leads to success. I am patient, whether waiting out a shooter or training every day to remain sharp and ready to return to the ice when the pandemic has passed. I balance hockey practice, lacrosse practice, a job, coaching 12u goalies, and three 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 since I began competing, and currently play both lacrosse, for which I am a captain, and hockey. 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, and will continue to until I graduate. I want to pursue both hockey and education at the highest level I possibly can.
