Family: My parents have taught me the importance of never giving up on what matters to you most. It is because of them that the values of perseverance, independence and self-worth have shaped me in becoming the person I am today. They showed me how important it is to be emotionally strong and simply to believe in yourself.
F.A.C.E School: One value that this place gave me was the importance of a strong sense of family. It is here that I met most of the people (friends, teachers) that have influenced me in becoming the person I am today including (but not limited to) William Hesselink, Rita Saad, Ella Sparling, and so many more.
Hockey Community: Most of my best childhood memories have been on an ice rink. It is throughout my 14 year career in hockey that I discovered the importance of teamwork and hardwork.
This network is, of course, a brief overview of all the people that have been apart of my life and have taught, influenced, and prepared me for what awaited me with valuable lessons and advice.
