MEET CHARLOTTE TURNER!
Tell us about yourself!
What made you want to be a WHL Brand Ambassador?
I heard about Women’s Hockey Life via Instagram. I thought that it was an amazing opportunity to promote the growth of women’s ice hockey, especially in Australia. I want to show and prove that ice hockey is not just for boys, as many people believe it is in Australia. The brand strongly stands for and promotes the values I think need to be demonstrated in life.
What are you most looking forward to as a #WHLAMBASSADOR?
I am most looking forward to helping WHL be a recognised brand and social media platform that sends positive messages about hockey to girls. I am looking forward to joining the global team of WHL Ambassadors to influence girls of all ages to understand that we can do anything, including playing in a fantastic healthy sport. I am looking forward to sharing my journey in hockey with other girls who take an interest in what we do.
What’s something not a lot of people know about you?
As well as playing hockey, I have quite an interest in music. I play the double bass and the piano, and in my school, I am part of the orchestra, sinfonietta (string ensemble), and jazz band. Like a lot of people my age, I also like online gaming when I can get time.
If you could sit down and have dinner with one female hockey player, who would it be and why?
Just one is so hard to choose! We have some really great and inspiring female players in the small Australian women’s ice hockey community that have helped and encouraged me on my hockey journey so far. To pick one is too hard, so I am going to choose the ladies on the Canterbury Ice Hockey Club Women’s Team, as they have welcomed me and really helped grow my skills and love of the game. They would be great to have dinner with and just talk about women’s hockey in Australia and touring the globe with our great sport.
