Why did you choose to attend Hope College?
I loved the cross country team, chapel, the atmosphere, and being close to Lake Michigan!

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation: I am thinking about going into environmental consulting.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you: I love Romans 8:38-39. It is just so crazy to me to think about how great God's love is for us, and I think this verse really shows that.

Where is your favorite place on campus? Probably the Pine Grove, but when I'm walking through it at 7:45 for an early class, because it is so quiet and I love seeing the sunrise through the trees.

What is your favorite pre-game music? I listen to Indie-Folk before races because it helps keep me calm, but if I really want to get pumped up with my teammates, we listen to Fetty Wap.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? I think I would do gymnastics, just because it would be so cool to be able to flip around like that.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Your best is always good enough.
