My big brother started playing hockey after the world championship in 1995. I got excited about hokey too, and started in the boys group where I didn’t feel like belonging. I stopped in the boy’s group and until 2002, I played basketball, football and ringette (= a team sport on ice). In 2002, a ice hockey team for girls was formed and I joined the team with my friend. Yet, ice hockey is until today seen as a men’s sport.

We have already been in the finals so next comes naturally to win either the World Championship next year or Olympics in two years.
