Personal Statement

I was born in Minnesota and moved to Wyoming at the age of 7. I lived there for 3 years and am now currently living in Colorado with my family.  A goal of mine has always been to be one of the few girls that get to pursue what they love, and for me that's hockey. I have the drive to do everything better than I did it the first time. Something that had a huge impact on my life was when I was cut from the boy's peewee team at the age of 11. I had just moved from Wyoming, and I hadn't played hockey in 3 years. I tried out for a boy’s Peewee team and did not make it. That was the only team for my age that year. It was a defining moment for me. Not only was it painful to not be chosen, but I thought that I might never get to play the sport I love.

I knew I had to improve.  I decided to give up soccer to concentrate on hockey.  Even though I knew I would not get to play a game that season, I went to every practice with the Peewee A team.  I attended edge classes on Saturdays. I set up drills in my basement. I attended private lessons with coaches to help me get better.  Through the summer I did multiple camps.  At the tryouts the next season, I made the boy's Peewee A team.

Grades and school always come before sports for me.  I love being around my friends and family, because of the fact they support me, encourage me, and push me to be better.  As a defenseman, I have a way of looking over the whole ice and knowing how the other teams move the puck. I never back down from a battle in a corner. I am strong, I never give up, and I am full of grit.  Even though it is difficult to hear sometimes, I have learned that taking criticism and applying it to a drill or a game, will make me better.

My goal is to play D1 Hockey in college.  I know that it will take a lot of hard work to achieve that goal, but I am prepared for that.  I’ve learned that hard work will pay off and I never back down from a challenge.
