About Athlete

Coming from a small town in South Africa, I realized that there is so much more out there in the world. I have always known that I wanted to go abroad someday. Going to the US to study and play hockey would be a dream come true and I would in no way take the opportunity for granted. I first started playing hockey when I was seven years old, and have developed an incredible love for the game ever since.
