I want to experience the games to their fullest, meet new people and athletes from across Canada, play to the best of my ability, be a team player and most importantly - HAVE FUN! (winning a medal wouldn't be too bad either!)
My personal role model
My sister has had the greatest impact on my hockey and performance. She encourages me all the time and supports me with training and academic status. She pushes me to excel in everything I do, and is my best friend and provides morale support. In addition to my sister, I had a grade 7 teacher named Ms. Wong who taught me many important lessons. She taught me to be the best I can be in everything. She touched me deeply with her wisdom, and although we may have lost touch, I still live by the lessons she taught me and credit her for the development of my personality and my attitude as an athlete.
