I ran down the stairs to tell my mom. As I told her who called she asked me, “What did he say?” I told her, “Coach Colintino from Robert Morris wants to give me a spot on his Division One women’s hockey team.” My mom, so excited, gave me a hug. All I needed to do was tell this coach that I wanted the spot. I called my dad and left him a message. This was the day I had been waiting for since I was in eighth grade, when I decided I wanted to play Division One hockey.
The next few days were filled with prayer and thinking. I wanted to make sure I told my family and asked for their opinion before I made anything final. My dream became a reality on December 23, 2011 when I called to leave my coach a message letting him know that I would love to be a Colonial and play for him.
As of the end of December, I will be attending Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where I will pursue my dream of being a Division One athlete. Along with athletics, Robert Morris has accepted me into the RMU’s Nursing Program where I will, in four years, become a registered nurse. I am so thankful and excited about attending RMU and can’t wait to start my next adventure!
