Why did you choose to attend Hope College? I loved the community atmosphere and how friendly everyone is.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation. Hopefully teach a special ed classroom.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Joshua 1:9 this was the Bible verse that got me through rough times in high school.

What is your favorite pre-game music? Pump-up music

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be and why? Volleyball, I played in high school and loved it, so I wish I could play it again.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Don't focus on the past, don't worry about the future, just enjoy the present.
