Part 2/2: Later in the week, Ashleigh attends the Petro-Canada Sport Leadership Awards Gala and plucks up the courage to talk to some Canadian coach celebrities about their heroes and what they value about coaches. This is as about as coach-nerdy as it gets, folks.

Special shout-out to my middle school, École Viscount Alexander in Winnipeg, MB. When I was in the 7th grade, I listened to Jeff Stoughton speak at our athletic banquet about growing up in Fort Gary and attending ÉVA thirty years before I did, and how his experiences at our middle school helped to shape him as an Olympian. To the student of ÉVA, keep your mind and eyes open, and pay attention in class. I was forced to make a mock radio show in grade 8 French, and I thought it was the most useless project ever. Today, I interviewed a Paralympian, an Olympic coach, many of Canada’s sport leaders, and a fellow ÉVA alumni. You never know where life is going to go, so be ready for anything.
