[Kaliya] Johnson latched on to [Blake] Bolden as her big sister [when both played at Boston College in the NCAA], a partner in crime for what had always been an isolated path [as a female hockey player of colour].

“It was like a huge deal for me to have someone to look up to and who was older than me and just, someone who was looking out for me in college. Everyone called me her little sister, we were like Diva 1, Diva 2 – it was kinda like a running joke ‘cause I would just follow her around everywhere.”
