Junie Sihlangu - Tomboy Tales In the before pic I was probably 4 or 5 years old. Back in the day we used to get forced into going to church on Sundays. I refused to wear dresses and was a tomboy from a young age. My family and neighbors always thought I'd grow out of it, but here I am, years later and I'm still one!

For as long as I can remember, I've hated wearing dresses. I was much more comfortable playing road hockey or basketball with the neighborhood kids, or trekking through the ravine digging up treasure. You'd find me in soccer shorts, sports jerseys, tearaway pants (oh the 90's), and cargo shorts throughout most of my childhood. I played on   every and any sports team from elementary school right up to high school - soccer, track and field, cross country, basketball, flag football, ice hockey... My passion for sports was more than just a hobby. In my "then" photo, I'm winning the award for MVP in my FIRST EVER season playing ice hockey. That was a big moment for me. I received a "letter" from my high school athletics association for being on 8 sports teams throughout my four years. And then in University, I pursued a degree in Physical and Health Education which I completed with High Honours.

In my "now" photo, you can see me (left) taking my partner for her first ever ice hockey lesson at a local rink. For me, the phrase "tomboy" was something that shifted from a bit of an ostracizing comment in grade school, to something I have embraced. I'm proud to be an athlete, I'm proud to work out, and I'm proud to be who I am. That in my mind is the spirit of being a TOMBOY.

 I'm a tomboy from the 1960's right up until now! I'm a mountain sledder who keeps up with the boys... and a mom of three. I have barrel raced/rodeos and rode in the Calgary Stampede. I have two University degrees and a Master's in the works. I sluice and pan for gold and when we're not snowmobiling I drive the ATV everywhere in the Rockies.
