ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Tied record for points in a match with 28 vs. Albion in Hope-hosted MIAA Preview Tournament on 9/8/18...MIAA Academic Honor Roll (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019)

GET TO KNOW

Why did you choose to attend Hope College? The reason that I chose Hope College, and something that, I think, really sets Hope apart is its connection to the Holland community. Growing up in Holland, I became an avid Hope sports fan with the help of my dad and grandpa. For ten plus years I have watched countless Hope games. With that, I can attest to the strong support system that Hope College Athletics have. With the stands packed and fans cheering every game, I knew growing up that this community was something I wanted to continue to be a part of. There is truly nothing like it.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation: After I graduate I hope to find a teaching job in the West Michigan area in either special education or elementary general education. With my degree I also hope to get involved with organizations in the community dedicated to aspects of special education and bettering the lives of people with exceptionalities.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

What is your favorite pre-game music? I don't have an exact song, just music that gets me in the mood to play volleyball- something fun and upbeat, but keeps me focused.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? I think I would do downhill skiing. Something about the idea of riding down a mountain on skis terrifies me, yet seems incredible.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? What matters is not what happened, but rather how you respond to it.
