Mikayla Demaiter is generating quite a stir on social media with her breathtaking Instagram photos, making her the latest sensation in town. At just 20 years old, this Canadian beauty initially set her sights on becoming a pro ice hockey player.
However, she made the bold choice to leave the world of sports behind and fully embrace a career in modeling. With a whopping 2.8 million followers on Instagram, Demaiter is capturing hearts left and right with mesmerizing snapshots that are impossible to ignore.
Who is Mikayla Demaiter?
Hailing from Woodbridge, a cozy suburb near Toronto, Canada, Demaiter’s roots are firmly planted. In her early days, she found her passion ignited by both ice hockey and boating. Showing remarkable dedication from a young age, she embarked on her hockey journey by becoming a part of the Bluewater Hawks in the Provincial Women’s Hockey League. Taking on the crucial role of a goalkeeper, she defended the Hawks’ honor for several seasons before making the courageous choice to step away from the game.
In June of last year, Demaiter turned to Instagram to share a significant decision: she was bidding farewell to her ice hockey days, all at the age of 19. While Demaiter’s retirement caught many off guard, reports from the Morning Bulletin hinted that her exit from the sport was a result of knee surgery she had to undergo. Unfortunately, details about her stats during her hockey career remain largely undisclosed as she made the pivot to her newfound modeling journey on Instagram.
Demaiter bids adieu in a very heartfelt note, “It is time to say goodbye to ice hockey. It is time to turn the page and move to the next chapter of my life, for the first time you will not be my number one focus. I am excited about the future because everything you have taught me will allow me to succeed. There will still be early mornings, new adventures, and new friends, and I hope that I embrace them with the same love and passion I did for you.”
