MIAA swimmer of the Week (1/27/20), MIAA Academic Honor Roll (2020, 2019)

Why did you choose to attend Hope College?
 The community, the campus, the academic programs available, and another opportunity to take part in swiming.

What were your favorite subjects in high school? Statistics, chemistry, and calculus.

What is your favorite movie and why? Whiplash (2014) because Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons are two of my favorite actors. The screenplay is unmatched. 

Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? And describe how. My high school swim coach, Jock Ambrose, is a man who is always upbeat, laughing, and has a story to tell. It was hard to be upset while in his presence. 

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Luke 14:13-14

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? Brown rice, eggs, bacon, and Frank's Red Hot; it's been my pregame meal for years.

What type of pregame music do you enjoy? Classical music and then hard rock. Occasionally hip-hop.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Spread joy. 

Please list any service opportunities you plan to be engaged with this year: Both on campus and off campus. (i.e. Mortar Board, CASA, Dance Marathon, Boys & Girls Club). Dance Marathon
