“Growing up I learned many valuable lessons through sport and from my family.” Aside from hockey, my deepest passion revolves around helping youth. There are so many outside pressures on kids today such as:
Perfectly filtered instagram posts
Dedicating their days, months and years to perfect their sport or craft
No free time for the really important events in life
These are examples that can lead kids to feel the need to be perfect. These forces rattle their confidence, contribute to anxiety, hijack their passion and allow no time to rest, relax or dream.
“One of my goals when working with youth today is to help them navigate this challenge and walk away feeling empowered, feeling like they matter, that they are enough and that they are capable of achieving their goals.”
