Personal Statement

I was first introduced to hockey at the age of two, and I fell in love with the sport completely. I grew up playing for my youth hockey program, but however, it was primarily boys.

The past three years I have played for the North Shore Vipers. Playing for a club team rather than a youth hockey program really showed me that I had to prove myself to the coaches, and the team. I had to show them that I deserved to play. I worked hard on and off the ice to become a stronger, well rounded player.

I started playing on the varsity high school hockey team when I was in seventh grade due to a shortage of girls in the high school program at the time. Throughout my years playing for high school, we worked very hard to achieve one goal, which was to make it to the state tournament. We finally made it to State Tournament this past season, and I truly believe it was the best learning experience, not only because we had made the state tournament, but because I was out in the middle of the season with a concussion. Showing up to every practice and game not being able to play, taught me that I could still be a leader and have an influence on my team, even if I could not speak to them or be with them on the ice.

Being on various teams throughout my life, hockey has taught me to persevere, be accountable for not just myself, but my team, and how valuable a commitment is. Being named captain for my sophomore and junior year has improved my work-ethic, determination, and leadership skills because I am always striving to set an example for my teammates.

For my future, I am looking for a college that will be a good fit both academically, athletically and one that can challenge me to compete at the next level. I have the dedication, leadership skills, diligence, and the character that would be a great addition to your team!
