Not only do I want to be a college hockey player, but I want to go to college to study biology and become a veterinarian. I want to help the animals that can't help themselves. I am a hard worker and continue to improve my skills both in the classroom and on the ice. I started playing hockey when my good friend invited my sister and I to skate on her backyard rink. From the first time I stepped on that ice I knew this was what I wanted to do. I never wanted to leave that rink, we went out there before school, after school, and snow days consisted of all day skating. Anyway, I have been working towards my dream of becoming a college hockey player ever since that backyard rink, and I will continue to work to help myself and my team succeed.
