Why did you choose to attend Hope College?
 I chose Hope College because it had everything I was looking for in a college: a strong education program, excellent golf team, Christian environment, great location, and small, community-like feel.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation. I plan on studying elementary education so that I can impact children's lives as a teacher one day.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. "But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.' I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me." 2 Corinthians 12:9 This verse reminds me that we need to bring God any sort of weakness and let his immense strength and power enter into our lives.

What is your favorite pre-game music? Country

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be and why? Tennis- I played it in high school, so I would continue that.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Be confident in yourself and never give up. This is pretty simple advice, but it is something that my Dad has always said to me. It applies to both golf and life in general.
