After reading a bit about my journey, my hope is that you'll explore more about me. That you'll be eager to get in touch, as I will be just as eager to hear from you. That you'll ask more questions. That you'll find I would be a positive presence to have in your life as an employee, friend, teammate and/or acquaintance. I am more than excited to gain new experiences and learn more about you.
A Brief Background.
Growing up into my tall body was exactly how you would think, AWKWARD. Yet I thank my body for being a top prospect for sport. I had the privilege to take part in various activities that taught me about LEADERSHIP, TEAMWORK, and COMPETITIVE DRIVE that I could apply in aspects of my life far beyond the court. Playing post secondary sport has required making many SACRIFICES such as taking part in internships, co-ops, events, social clubs, and other extracurricular activities that are resume standouts for graduating students such as myself. Although, what many employers don't know about my part-time job (varsity volleyball) is the DEDICATION and COMMITMENT it takes. Spending on average 12 hours of practicing, 6 hours of game play, 5 hours of working out, 2 hours of video, and anywhere from 5 - 16 hours of travel a week has enabled me to MULTITASK and stay ORGANIZED. Whilst being sporty, I am first a STUDENT and while being a student I am also a member of the COMMUNITY. With this being said, I happily spend 50+ hours a year giving back to the community in various ways. So what am I trying to say? I am saying that I don't sell myself short of others who may have more hard skilled experience on paper. I have been taught from a young age the importance of HARD WORK, RESILIENCE and overcoming ADVERSITY. Quality COMMUNICATION between coaches, players, professors and other peers has enabled me to be a mentally and physically healthy student-athlete while also maintaining a cumulative 3.5 GPA. My skills and assets that I have acquired cannot be learn't in a day and nor in a classroom. I have thirst to become better in every role of my life from being a mentor to a being a captain to being a team player. I have the DESIRE and MOTIVATION to be a positive influence within the Alberta landscape. My contributions, collaborations and creativity, I am certain, will improve the environment I am immersed in.
