OTTAWA - The Carleton Ravens golf team are proud to announcement the commitment of local golfer Mimi Braiter. An incredibly successful junior golfer, Braiter brings championship pedigree to Carleton.
In Braiter, the Ravens add the 2020 and 2021 PLAY Junior Golf Tour and 2021 Ottawa Valley Girls Association Golf Juvenile Order of Merit winner. A champion on both tours, Braiter now looks to build team success at Carleton.
“I am really looking forward to being on team,” explained Braiter. The young golfer now prepares to join the Ravens where she’s no longer alone in her development.
“I've always played golf as an individual, and I am really looking forward to training and playing on a team. I can't wait to meet my teammates!”
Braiter began playing golf at a young age and now uses an aggressive full swing approach to attack courses.
“I started playing golf because my grandfather really wanted to have a golf partner, so he started bringing me to the golf course at a young age. I loved being outside and having one-on-one time with him, and discovered that I had a natural talent for the game.”
In addition to being a star on the course, the future Bachelor of Arts, Law student is very engaged in the local community. Braiter runs A Ripple Effect, an organization that pairs volunteer youth with children who are having difficulty in their lives due to personal or family illness.
For Braiter, her interest in helping others guided her decision in choosing Carleton and her program. “I hope to later become a family lawyer to help families and kids have the best possible outcome from a difficult situation.”
