Why did you choose to attend Hope College? Hope has a very supportive community with great academics and it's been a dream of mine to run at Hope College.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation. I plan to work towards getting my fitness trainer certification through National Academy Of Sports Medicine.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing - 1 Thessalonians 5:13. This is meaningful to me because I strive to be positive and encouraging towards myself and my teammates.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be and why? Basketball or Hockey because I have a lot of childhood memories of playing basketball and pond hockey. 

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? As my Dad always told me, "Work Hard Work Hard."
