I started playing inline hockey in 2011 when I was seven years old, and did not transition to ice hockey until I was thirteen. At the time, I knew many kids my age have been playing ice hockey since they could walk, but that did not discourage me from playing. That made me work harder. I practiced very hard on the fundamentals, and worked on them every single day. I have learned many valuable life lessons through hockey that I will always remember for the rest of my life, and I will try to motivate and inspire others with the lessons that I have learned. I take my academics very seriously, as well as my athletics. I love being at school, and learning. My goals in college would to be getting a good education, as well as fulfilling my dreams playing hockey. I am a leader, I never let any one of my teammates hang their heads in defeat. I never play for myself, I play for my coaches, the girls and guys who sit on the bench next to me, and the logo on the front of my jersey. I try to do what is best for my team and strive to be the best I can be in the classroom, and on the rink.
