Hey! My name is Katie Bentley (she/her), and I live in Victoria, BC, on the unceded land of the Lək̓ʷəŋən, Songhees, Esquimalt Nations and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples. I am in my first year at the University of Victoria studying engineering and playing for the Vikes Women’s Field Hockey Team! It has been the biggest privilege to represent my university and play with such talented, hard-working teammates. Currently, I spend most of my time studying and training, but when I have free time, I love spending time outdoors, hanging out with my dog (Lir), and goofing off with friends and family.
A friend of mine, and fellow Youth Advisory Council (YAC) member, Ines, introduced me to Fast & Female in 2021. I began working on YAC with Fast & Female that year, and I love the opportunity to be a part of such an empowering community of active women. My favourite part of working with Fast & Female is meeting all the incredible people involved and watching young girls connect, move, and gain confidence!
