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.
