My favorite sports are soccer and golf in the summer, and skiing in the winter. I am a member at Rattle Snake Point Golf Club in Milton, Ontario and play there frequently. In the winter, I often travel to Alberta to ski with my family in the Rocky Mountains. I play soccer with the Oakville Soccer Club and my favorite position is the goalkeeper. I also have an interest in music. I play the piano outside of school and the tenor saxophone inside school. I enjoy playing both of these instruments. At home, I enjoy spending time with my family.
