GOAL HIGHLIGHTS

Life Goals: A too-often overlooked component to a positive plan for the future is happiness. So frequently we see young people focusing on the financial aspect of the spectrum when figuring forthcoming situations and desires. Conversely, if all goes well, my future will consist of passion, growth, and bliss: the quintessential factors of a satisfactory lifestyle.

Career goals: Spearheaded by a determination to achieve overall contentment in my life, along with a fierce fervency for teaching and a natural propensity for foreign languages has lead me to aspire to be -motivated me to be- a language professor at the college level.

Future goals you hope to obtain as a hockey player: It would be a dream come true to play roller hockey in Europe. Living there and even possibly attending school would be a life changing circumstance that I could see myself obtaining at some point in my life – if I play my cards right.

Who is the person you most admire/greatest influence in your life and why: Although it may seem rather cliché, my mother is who I admire over all other people. She has raised 3 children alone for extended periods of time at low income, has been through numerous physical and abusive hardships, yet still wins the Customer Service Award at her job – everybody loves her.
