There are many kids that are successful in life. Evie Warner is a determined ten-year-old girl who is successful in ice hockey. Let's learn more about her through this interview!

Hi Evie! I heard that you have been playing hockey for a long time.

Yes, I have been playing for almost seven years!

Wow, that's a lot of years! So, what started you on this journey?

Well, when I was kid, I used to watch ice hockey television with my family and I thought it was really cool the way they handled the hockey puck with the stick so I asked my mom if I could try hockey and she said yes. 

Was it ever difficult getting used to it?

Yes, it was pretty difficult. I kept on falling and losing the hockey puck and while I was practicing, I learned that hockey is more effort than it takes, but since I was determined I kept getting better and better from my mistakes.

What is one of your biggest accomplishments?

I participated in an all-girls ice hockey tournament. In this tournament, I competed with the top hundred players ages ten, eleven, and twelve from other countries.

Who motivated you the most?

My biggest motivation is my mom. She is always there; she is always looking for the best teams for me.

How often do you practice?

So, on season days (like winter) on average I practice three times a week but on non-season days I practice once a week. And I have games every weekend.

What do you do when you are at home?

I draw and I also play with my two cats and I watch ice hockey. I also play other sports like soccer and softball.What makes you different from other players?

To finish off the interview, what would you like to say?

I don't only practice on practice day, I practice everyday. Also I always look on the positive side, like whenever we are going to compete against a hard team I always think we are going to win.And I would like to say that when you push yourself to the limits anything can be successful.

Thank you, Evie Warner, it was nice learning more about you!
