GET TO KNOW 

Why did you choose Hope College? I grew up surrounded by Hope college and their basketball camps, plus my mom works here so I was always around Hope.

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? And why? Bagels, they are good and make me feel like I'm eating healthy before a game. 

What is your favorite movie and why? Nerve, it has a lot of suspense and it kept me hooked the whole movie. Also Emma Roberts and Dave Franco are in it.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? It's better to try something and not like it than to be left wondering "what if..."

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. “Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity”1 Timothy 4:12. I used to believe that since I was still young, I couldn't make a difference or have a strong enough faith.Then I came across this verse and it stuck out to me. At the time I was a youth group leader and worked at an after school program for middle school kids. It made me realize that even though I am close to their age, I'm still making a major impact in these kids lives.

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). Lodge, an after school program at Calvary CRC for middle school age students.
