The reason I choose Hayley Wickenheiser for my hero is because Hayley has always been a role model to me because of her love and passion for hockey. When I was in Tim Bits my friend Sarah and I had the chance of a lifetime to meet Hayley Wickenheiser. Her smile and enthusiasm made me encouraged to play hockey, and I still play today, and ever since then Hayley Wickenheiser has been my hero.
