Why did you choose to attend Hope College? Community, good education, good athletics.

What were your favorite subjects in high school? Anatomy

Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? And describe how. My mom, she has always just worked very hard for everything she has earned and done in life. 

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: Psalm 25:15, it is a good reminder that I should always look to God regardless of the situation or circumstances that I am in.

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.

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? Apple maybe

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 Drake

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? God is bigger than anything I will and have endured so with him I can conquer anything.
