Why did you choose to attend Hope College?
 I chose to come here because I really liked the atmosphere. The people are all so friendly and it is truly a great place. I liked that I could surround myself with a good academic reputation, a roaring Christian environment, and an opportunity to continue competing at a collegiate level. 

What were your favorite subjects in high school? Chemistry and Math

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Psalm 88:9 "You rule the swelling of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them". I like this verse because a wave can be seen as a hardship but with the Lord, those waves will be calmed and you will walked upon them with Him.

What is your favorite pre-game music? Gold by Kiiara.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? Soccer because I like the team aspect of it and being in shape to run for a long time

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Let go and let God.
