GET TO KNOW

Why did you choose to attend Hope College? I chose Hope because of its' stellar student-athlete program, undergraduate research, and faith on campus. 

What were your favorite subjects in high school? AP Bio 

Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? And describe how. Kelly Peregrine has been one of my role models. Although she is my peer, her strength and leadership shines in everything she applies herself to. My parents have also been role models for me because they have taught me how to work hard and follow my passions and interests. 

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? Pizza and coffee. I don't know why but it works. 

What is your favorite movie and why? It's not a movie, but I love The Gilmore Girls. It's the comfort food of TV.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you: John 8:7 "He that is without sin among you, let him be the first to cast a stone at her" is my favorite Bible verse because it grants me the perspective to remember to live humbly.  

What is your favorite pre-game music? "All These Things That I've Done" by The Killers

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? I would dance either ballet or modern because it's fun!

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? One's worth is not based on performance alone. 

Please list any service opportunities you plan to be engaged with this year: Both on campus and off campus. (i.e. Mortar Board, CASA, Dance Marathon, Boys & Girls Club). I plan on volunteering with the Art Therapy Program at Spectrum Health.
