Who is your favorite sports figure:


Who is the person you most admire/greatest influence in your life and
why: I couldn't say I have a person in my life I look up to most, but certainly my parents have played a major role in my life. It is because of them for who and where I am today. Without them, I am not sure what I would be doing. Their support and dedication to my hockey and schooling is tremendous.


List your hobbies: Playing hockey of course, listening to music, reading, baking, going to the movies, skating at the beach, and dancing.


What music do you listen to during training or competition? Dance or Techno like Avicii, Benassi Bros, and Inna.


What makes you a unique and special person:


Favorite food before a competition: Anything really. Ask anyone that knows me, and guaranteed they will say anything.
