Why did you choose to attend Hope?
 I chose to attend Hope because after taking a tour of the campus, it felt like home to me. The Hope community is so welcoming and friendly, and I thought it would be a perfect fit for me. I have friends who attend Hope and they absolutely love it, and the more I learned about Hope, the more I thought I would love it too.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation. I plan to work with at-risk children in a school environment.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you:
Isaiah 43:2, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze."

What is your favorite pre-game music? Anything upbeat, usually some good throwback hip hop.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? Gymnastics, because I have always regretted quitting when I was little.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Life is unpredictable and no amount of master-planning can keep things exactly as you want them. So, just let go. Let your passions guide you, not your fears.
