This girl loves her hockey

Never quit! Do what you love and never ever let someone get in your way.

I’m a girl, I’m 11 years old and have played hockey since I was four. We do as good as the boys, if not even better! I’m going to tell you about the boys, myself and hockey.

About a year ago when I went to a hockey camp, I was the only girl. A mom or dad phoned the person that runs the camp and said “this camp is for boys, not girls!” Then the camp instructor said “she has the right to be here she has the ability too”.

That got me so mad because I love hockey and I think it’s wrong to say girls can’t play. I love playing and hockey is my life!

I hope that girls can always play hockey if they want to.

The quote that always runs through my head is: “The bigger you dream, the better you play!”

That reminds me of the girls that play hockey before and after school.

They dream and dream and never ever quit.

If someone says girls don’t play hockey and tell me to quit I’ll just skate away.

Never quit! Do what you love and never ever let someone get in your way.
