My goals for the 2007 Canada Winter Games
My goals for the 2007 CWG is to become the most developed defesive player and to beable to prove that I truly am more than capable of being a part of this team! I want to gain respect from the opposing teams and from everyone else from our association.
My personal role model
My personal role model is a friend of mines sister, who participated in the last CWG in New Brunswick. She is an amazing player and person. And shows a love of the game, and she knows how to have a good time, but stay focased on the game ahead.
Other information that could be of interest to the media
Last year, I played for the Nova Scotia Provincial team, and half the time I was sat on the bench because I wasn't performing to the liking of my coach. I was never given a fair chance and all of my confidence was taken away within a few months, no matter how hard I tried to stay positive. I barely saw the ice and I could tell that my skills were slowly dropping. Then, Canada Games tryouts came along and out of the 8 defence who were on my team last year, only two people made it, and I was one of them. My coaches believed in my talents and I want to prove that I can come back and become the player I know I can be.
