Name someone who inspires you and explain why
The one person who inspires me the most would be Hayley Wickenheiser. I have been to her ‘Wick Fest’ tournament many times. I have read her story and learned all about it. What inspires me the most is how she pushed herself to be an amazing hockey player no matter how hard it would’ve been growing up in a male dominant sport, she kept her goals there and succeeded in them. She is an Olympic good medallist which I would love to be if I ever got the opportunity. She got her M.D in the same field that I would like to do when I’m older; Sports Medicine.  She is working in Player Development with the Toronto Maple Leafs, which is my favourite team. Everything she has accomplished in her life shows me anyone can do it once you put your mind to it which has helped me a lot to push myself throughout the years I’ve been involved in hockey.
