Why did you choose to attend Hope College? I chose Hope College because of the elite athletic teams and high academic reputation. The coaches and professors truly care about your personal development, both on the court and in the classroom.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation. With a double major in communication and business, I intend to work in the business marketing field while incorporating the media area of communications. My goal is to work with college athletic departments.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you: 1 Kings 8:61 - "And may your hearts be fully committed to the Lord our God."

Where is your favorite place on campus? The Pine Grove! The PG is an awesome place to kick back for a hammock session or to just throw around a frisbee with some friends.

What is your favorite pre-game music? NEEDTOBREATHE gets me pretty hype.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? Surfing, because I love the chill lifestyle and living at the beach. Surfing Hawaii's North Shore and Australia's Gold Coast are at the top of my bucket list!

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Play every game as if it's your last.
