Why did you choose Hope College? From the first time I visited Hope, it felt like home. I loved the people I met at Hope. Also, I loved how Hope helps students grow in their faith, academics, and athletics. The sense of community was another factor that drew me to Hope. I knew Hope would be a great place that I could challenge myself and grow as a person in the next four years. 

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? And why? An apple, because I love fruit.

What is your favorite movie and why? The Blind Side, because it shows how kindness and sports can change someones life. 

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? A lot of things in life you cannot control, but one thing you can control is your effort. 

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Psalm 46:10 - "Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!" This verse helps me remember how great our God is. Often times when I am worried about troubles of this world I think of this verse and that all I have to do is "Be still" because my God is so mighty he is going to take care of me because he is always with me!

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). Dance Marathon
