Teamwork is important to me because it is so fun being a part of a team. It’s awesome knowing that I am a part of what happens on the ice, but I also feel so excited for my teammates when they score a goal or do something great on the ice! It is a terrific feeling when we can celebrate and encourage each other.  

I have attended week-long FCA Hockey Skills Camps over the past two summers. I also got to be a part of an on-going FCA skills program this past summer. When I am at an FCA camp, I love seeing how God impacts everyone’s lives. The leaders share testimonies that speak to my heart. They have taught me about being humble and treating others how I would want to be treated myself. Plus, the ice time and dry land time help me develop as an athlete. I really like the rapid shot station. It’s so fun meeting new friends from all over. FCA Hockey Camps are great!

My favorite scripture verse is Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Through that verse, I know that Jesus is my true strength, and He will help me through anything and everything in life. It gives me courage to work hard at hockey.

I am game for almost anything, from farming with my uncle and cousin, to snowboarding with friends, or taking trips with my family. I love to have a good time. I tell a lot of jokes and like to make people laugh!
