Why have you joined AMP? It’s exciting to be a part of the Athlete Ambassador program because I feel it will make a direct and immediate impact in helping players from countries 5-14 gain more information and resources to improve their game. Having direct and immediate access to World and Olympic Champions is invaluable information and will be an important step in continuing to improve and grow women’s hockey around the world.
