Why did you choose to attend Hope College?
 I chose Hope for many reasons. It has an excellent education program, strong golf team, Christian environment, community-like feel, and great location.

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. Ecclesiastes 3:11 - "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end." I love this verse because it shows us that God has a plan even when it might not seem like it, and we have to trust that things will work out in His time. 

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? Don't just give up because things get tough. Stay determined.

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). First Tee of West Michigan, Dance Marathon
