So Far, So Good!

Hey everyone! This is officially my first blog post and I’m excited to get to share some of my story. This has been a really great month for me here at the Academy. I’ve been recovering from a surgery for the past 6 months and haven’t played hockey for 7 months, and I finally got cleared to skate just as practices were starting. It has felt really good to get back on the ice, and honestly, being back in the sport I love helps make the Academy more fun. My parents are also coming up for my first weekend of games, so it was perfect timing in getting all healed up. On top of that, I’ve been in a command position this semester, so I get to work a lot with the underclass. It is extremely rewarding to get to work on my own leadership style and figure out who I want to be as a leader, as well as working to help the 3/c and 4/c grow. 4/c year was so influential in my growth as a person, and it is really nice to share some of the lessons that I learned so that the new 4/c can grow even more than I felt that I did!

I hope you all have a fantastic rest of the month! Thank you for taking the time to read my post!
