I have been playing hockey since I was 4 years old. I participated in competitive youth hockey for 10U Major and Minor and 12U Major and Minor divisions. I joined a competitive female team in 14U AA for two years, and then 16U AA. That year, 2016, my team won Nationals. The following year I played 16U AAA. This year I am on a 19U AAA team. I am confident that playing hockey in college will help me keep my competitive edge and also facilitate my higher education.
