“With my goal of become an educator Queens offers my program Physical Education which will surround me with people with the same goal. It also offers me a chance to attend teachers college after my four year program. I have gotten to know the coaches very well while watching my brother play for Queens for three years and also was coached by Ryan Sheehan. Being able to visit the campus several times and meeting the players really allowed me to picture myself attending Queen’s. Kingston is a very small town which enables the players so be so close to each other and creates a family bond. I am proud to be able to call Queen’s home for the next four years.”
