Why did you choose to attend Hope College?
 I chose to attend Hope based on it's great academic programs, the family-based team environment surrounding swimming and diving, and the religious support that Hope offers.

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

Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? And describe how. My uncle Andy Anderson is a huge role model to me. By leading through example by raising his 2 boys, returning back to school, and growing his faith with God, he has shown perseverance, respect for others, and humility.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. This bible verse means a lot to me because it reminds me that God is always with you to protect and guide you through the trials and tribulations of life.

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? I have an infamous habit of eating sweets before meets, most commonly marshmallows.

What type of pregame music do you enjoy? I enjoy a good mix of relaxing music to calm the nerves and hip hop/rap to pump me up. Some of my favorite artists include Post Malone, Childish Gambino, Lil Uzi Vert, and Logic.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? The best advice I've ever received was that "The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today". It motivates me to work hard everyday and treat every day like it matters.
