Why did you choose to attend Hope College? I believe that Hope was the perfect fit for me and had everything I was looking for in a school. The moment I stepped foot on campus I fell in love with the college and all of its amazing people.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation: I plan on becoming a surgical physician assistant.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you: Psalms 25:15. It is meaningful because it reminds me that whenever I am caught in a situation that I know I can't handle on my own God is always there regardless of how difficult.

What is your favorite memory from a community service project you’ve been involved at Hope? Since I am an incoming freshman I haven't been involved with a community service project at Hope yet, but I am looking forward to the opportunity to be a blessing to others.

Where is your favorite place on campus? DeVos Fieldhouse because I plan on spending a lot of my time there playing basketball which is my passion.

What is your favorite pre-game music? Anything that gets me hype and focused.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? Probably volleyball because the games just become so intense so quickly and I love the team’s enthusiasm.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Trust God.
