Hayden is a junior at UNC studying biostatistics at the Gillings School of Global Public Health. Born and raised in the Detroit area, he is originally from Michigan but now lives in Cary, North Carolina. Hayden has been playing ice hockey since age four and played on the UNC hockey team his freshman year, but is currently taking a break to focus on his academics. He plans to eventually pursue a career in the pharmaceutical industry; however, in his free time, Hayden pursues photography as a very passionate hobby.
My favorite athlete is Niklas Kronwall, a former defenseman on the Detroit Red Wings. I grew up in Michigan watching and playing ice hockey, and Kronwall would always land crazy hits; these moments were a huge part of why I love hockey so much. If you want to see what I'm referring to, just search up "Kronwall best hits" on YouTube. You won't regret it.
