Play on two high level (AA and A) hockey teams that are very competitive and have won or placed high in division and league and provincial championships in Ontario, Canada.
As it relates primarily to sports, I would say that first and foremost I love sports with a passion. I am a multi-sport athlete playing AA hockey, Indoor Volleyball, Beach Volleyball (twice provincial champions) and was in the past a provincial level sprinter. As it relates to academics I do take my work quite seriously and have a strong work ethic and good academic results. As a leader I do like to help people and do so in the form of being a House Head at my high school, the captain of my volleyball team and a regular community volunteer.
In college I would like to study in the area of life sciences with a potential focus on Kinessiology. My goal is to complete my degree with a set of useful tools to either enter graduate school or a profession.
I have been playing hockey since I was 5 years old and playing indoor and beach volleyball for the past 5 years.
As a team candidate, based on unsolicited feedback from my coaches and teachers over the years, I believe that I would be a good candidate for a college hockey team for the following reasons. I push myself hard to achieve high performance whether it is in hockey (highly ranked team in the province), indoor volleyball, beach volleyball (twice provincial champions) and track and field as a past Provincial level sprinter. I have a strong inner drive to excel and I am very conscientious about my sport and academics together. I am a strong two way player and can as a forward get back fast to back check and turn the play around. I am competitive by nature but not dysfunctional in that regard. I am very open to being taught by coaches and I am known as a quick learner. I am viewed as a player who is easy and receptive to coaching. I am very organized and time efficient as I manage multiple sports, school and the regular duties being Head of House at school. I am extremely fit as a result of multiple sports and an an ongoing fitness program. I am very strong and very fast on my feet and on skates. I work very well with others on a team and am known as a solid team player and good friend and leader. I believe I have a good mental game including a very positive mental attitude in all my sports. On the personal side I very much enjoy people both in school and in sport. I have great friendships from both school and sports.
In my current year of grade 11 I was elected House Head are Bishop Strachan School in Toronto. As House Head (for Langtry) my regular weekly duties involve running house meetings weekly where information is shared and issues discussed. In this role I also play a role in supporting particularly the younger aged girls of the 70 girls in the house organization.
On my club volleyball team I am the captain and in that role given some of the team challenges this year I try to help my peers in various ways.
I have a real passion for sport nothing playing it and as an academic interest (Kinesiology).
I am 110% committed to maintaining my core fitness through a year round fitness program. This is enhanced by the over 200 times I am on ice each season for hockey between my two teams, and on court for indoor volleyball and beach volleyball.
I maintain a very good diet and by very good time management keep a good balance. I am busy but balanced. I do like being busy.
I have always been involved in community service in many ways including volunteering for various roles in supporting sports events associated with the school in some form. I have been involved in volunteer work to raise money for school related charitable events.
I am also, through my overall community efforts, working may ways towards the Gold Medal associated with the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
