MIAA Academic Honor Roll (2018, 2019)

Why did you choose to attend Hope College?
 I chose to attend Hope College because it allowed me to pursue my passion for swimming while still allowing me to focus on my academics and prepare for a career in physical therapy.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation. I plan to attend PT graduate school after graduation in order to earn my DPT and I hope to be a physical therapist for wounded war veterans.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Hebrews 6:19 "Hope anchors the soul" because it has my name in it and the logo for Hope college is an anchor so I feel like I can connect to this verse and it reminds me to always have hope for the future. 

What is your favorite pre-game music? Dancing or country music ("I wanna dance with somebody" by Whitney Houston).

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be and why? I would chose field hockey because my mom played field hockey in high school and college and it would be something that we could do together. I also really enjoy just running around and getting in a good workout.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Believe in myself even if it feels like no else does.
