MEET SASHA BODIE!
Tell us about yourself!
I am originally from Bagot, Manitoba but currently live in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. I am an engineering materials lead, which in basic terms is an “engineer tech”. My hockey story is that I grew up playing and loving hockey. As soon as I started walking I was on skates, I then continued to play competitive hockey until I capped out in age in the (MWJHL) Junior A Women League in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
What made you want to be a WHL Brand Ambassador?
I wanted to be a WHL Brand Ambassador because I have such a strong passion for hockey that I love seeing girls/women of all ages play and love the sport as much as I do. I feel I am a great role model and even with my busy schedule, I still make time to hit the ice. I am always happy on the ice and love teaching hockey to younger generations.
What are you most looking forward to as a #WHLAMBASSADOR?
I am most looking forward to networking with other women who share the same passion as I do.
What’s something not a lot of people know about you?
I am a pretty open book so a lot of people know almost everything about me but I guess most people don’t know that I have no fear. I am not scared of anything. I am willing to do or try anything. For example, I love climbing chutes with my snowmobile in the mountains—the adrenaline rush is like no other!
If you could sit down and have dinner with one female hockey player, who would it be and why?
If I could sit down and have dinner with one female hockey player it would have to be Hayley Wickenheiser, simply because she is a legend and she defied the odds for women playing hockey in a male dominated sport and grew to be an incredible role model for women. There is so much I would love to learn from her!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given in hockey or in life?
The best advice I have ever been given in hockey is that you don’t have the be best on the ice, you just need to be confident in your capabilities and use them to your advantage on the ice. Play smart!
