Why did you choose to attend Hope College? The community, they are so caring, loving and so proud of Hope College. I love that.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you: Proverbs 17:22. Search it. Read it. And then you'll know why it's my favorite. 

What is your favorite memory from a community service project you’ve been involved at Hope? I went to a camp and worked with kids who have been affected by cancer and their families. I loved working with all of them and learning so much from them. We had dinner with them and all the screaming and chants I loved!

Where is your favorite place on campus? Wherever my friends are at.

What is your favorite pre-game music? Country.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? Football... I would destroy.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Do what you love not what others think you should do.
