Why did you choose to attend Hope College?
 I wanted to have the opportunity to have a well rounded education and also get involved in extracurricular activities at the same time.

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? And why? Fried Chicken. Chicken makes you fast fast!

What is your favorite movie and why? The God's must be crazy. It wasn't funny.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Psalm 23 - The whole chapter is basically a manual of how God wants us to live. A life of righteousness, courage, and faith. He reminds us not to fear the tough times for He is always with us.

What is your favorite memory from a community service project you’ve been involved at? Rearranging a whole library of books at a local school in Kenya.

Where is your favorite place on campus? Why? The Dow,because I love swimming.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be and why? Handball,I like games that involve creativity and personal goals.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Have the courage to live a life true to yourself, not the life others expect of you.

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). Kids Hope USA, Mortar Board.
