Why did you choose Hope College? I came here for the mixture of rigor in the sciences and research, as well as the Christian environment on campus. After all my visits, the atmosphere at Hope just felt like home.

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? And why? Bread - It is the old reliable. I’ve never regretted a good slice of bread. 

What is your favorite movie and why? The Dark Night - The Joker is easily the best movie villain ever written

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? My wrestling coach once told me “Don’t be an idiot.” That always stuck with me as solid way to go about life.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. 2 Corinthians 12 9-10 - I love this verse because as people, we are all imperfect, but this verse reminds us that God uses us where we are, even in our imperfections, to spread his love to the world, so even when we don’t feel at our best, God is using that to work towards His plan.

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
