Why did you choose to attend Hope College? I chose to attend Hope College because of the community atmosphere, as well as have the opportunity to be pushed mentally and spiritually. 

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation. plan to attend PA School and eventually become a physician assistant.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Jeremiah 29:11 is my favorite verse (it's the verse written on the bill of my hat) because God shares that he knows of the plan he has for you; this has been a verse I have been able to hold on during times of adversity.

What is your favorite memory from a community service project you’ve been involved at Hope? My favorite memory of serving the community while at Hope has been leading Young Life at West Ottawa High School. It has been a unique opportunity to be involved with a number of high school students - attending Young Life club once a week, Bible study, and their sporting events.

Where is your favorite place on campus? Why? My favorite place on campus is the science center; I spend nearly all of my time there because of my classes, so I have grown fond of it.

What is your favorite pre-game music? My favorite pre-game music is anything from country to rap.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be and why? If I could play another sport, I would pick to play hockey because of the physical nature of the sport and how it is intertwined with a lot of technique.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Some of the best advice I have ever received is from my mom, who told me that if I want something bad enough (in sports, academics, life in general), all I have to do is decide. Once that decision happens, I will be willing to do anything it takes to make it become a reality.
