Why did you choose to attend Hope College?

I also loved meeting the girls on the Tennis team and I knew I would have a fun time practicing, traveling, and competing with them.

Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? And describe how. So many people have impacted my life. My parents have taught me so much. I am continually shaped by their wisdom and thankful for their generosity in supporting me. My friends at hope are so supportive and encouraging. I don't know if I could have made it through my engineering classes without them. Their work ethic and motivation inspires me. I thank the lord for them everyday. Finally, my mentor.
