ACCOMPLISHMENTS
HOPEYS Karen Page Courage Award (2019)...MIAA Player of the Week (11/6/17, 9/8/15)

GET TO KNOW
Why did you choose to attend Hope College? Hope College fit what I was looking for academically, athletically, and spiritually.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation: I plan on attending medical school and specializing in pediatrics.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you: John 1:5

What is your favorite memory from a community service project you’ve been involved at Hope? Last fall I volunteered at the daycare center for the Holland Rescue Mission. I love all the relationships I built there with the kids.

Where is your favorite place on campus? Van Andel Soccer Stadium because when I step on the field or in the locker room every worry is gone and I get to do the thing I love most with some of the people I love most.

What is your favorite pre-game music? "Classical piano/string"

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? Basketball I have had a love for it since I was very little and it broke my heart to not be able to play it anymore.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? The only thing that can improve a situation is hard work, so go big or go home.
