GET TO KNOW 

Why did you choose Hope College? Out of all the colleges I visited, Hope was the most welcoming and has a strong sense of community. Everyone at Hope seemed genuine and friendly and went the extra mile to make me feel wanted..

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? And why? Grapes or watermelon because I love fruit and they're refreshing

What is your favorite movie and why? Tangled because it's just a cute and fun movie
.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Let go and let God.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Matthew 7.3-4 - "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is a log in your own?" -- This is a powerful verse to me because it reminds us not to judge others or point out their flaws. It tells us to instead focus on our own flaws and work on our personal growth. We should be more focused on improving ourselves than comparing each other or putting others down.

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, Dew Crew, Hope Volunteers, Engedi Church, Outdoor Adventure Club.
