My whole life I thought my sports life would revolve around hockey, until I was introduced to the sport of lacrosse, and from the very first day I held a stick in my hands i fell in love with the world and culture of lacrosse. I started a little late at the age of 10. Most of my teammates were better than me. I looked up to them, and moved my goals from hockey to becoming the best I can be at lacrosse. I can't remember the countless hours I stood in front of the house playing wall ball, practicing toe drags, shooting and breaking a few windows along the way. The first feeling of accomplishment I felt through lacrosse was playing starting Varsity for my highschool co-op team in eighth grade. Although it wasn't much for anyone else, the feeling was truly magical. This feeling is what makes me want to get better, be the best I can be, win, learn from losing, and grow as a person. When I became more serious about my lacrosse career is when I found myself in the shoes of those who I once looked up to. Those who made me want to get better. Also those who didn't. I strive to be better than the people before me, and help those who are by my side on the field trying to accomplish the same thing. Over the years my confidence in my skill has grown and have used it to my advantage on the field. I am extremely confident with running and moving with the ball, in my passing, slide packages, communication, and one on one defense. Outside of lacrosse I love being with my friends, skateboarding, drawing, and learning about the most random things the world has to offer. From a young age, my love of drawing has matured and I found myself being fascinated with architecture, landscaping, and interior design. In school I am taking IB English, IB visual arts, IB biology, and I am part of the Spanish Immersion program and have been speaking Spanish for 12 years. I hope to play lacrosse at the collegiate level, and grow as a person and endure new experiences.
