Why do you play hockey?
“I had been playing roller hockey for about 11 or 12 years. Right before high school my mom encouraged me to play ice hockey. I ended up making the team and I wasn’t that good, but worked hard. I chose hockey over other sports because it appealed to me.”

If you couldn’t play hockey in the future, what would you do?
“If I couldn’t do hockey I would try to be involved in something else, maybe crew (rowing) or anything that involves a team. It gives you a chance to bond with people. It’s fun and it’s good to see your team succeed.”

What is your favorite class?
“I enjoy a lot of things. I like AP European History and CAD (Computer Aided Design) class. It’s a lot of architecture and design. You have a lot of options and you can get creative with it.”

What did you learn from being on the Model UN?
“It brought me out of my shell. I used to be a shy person, and being in the Model UN I am more comfortable speaking around people. I also learned how to research things better.”

Is it hard to balance both Model UN and hockey?
“I play hockey at least twice a week and I have a meeting with model UN once a week. It gets tight sometimes.”
