Why did you choose Hope College? I chose Hope College because as soon as I stepped on campus I could tell that the community was so tight knit. The school is big enough that I can meet someone new everyday, but small enough that I’ll run into people I know which is also something I really like!

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? And why? It's a weird combo, but I really like plantain chips and guac. It’s not too filling so I always try and pack it for a quick snack before playing. Also just turkey and cheese sandwiches.

What is your favorite movie and why? Up! I think the movie is so cute and I always feel happy after I watch it :)

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? I think the best advice I’ve been given is that it’s not my job to fix everything, no matter how much I feel like I have to.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. 1 Corinthians 1:25 - “For the foolishness of God is wiser than man, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.” This verse blows my mind because it just shows how big God really is! Even when He’s foolish, He’s still wiser than us. Even when He’s weak, He’s still stronger than us. 

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). Young life, Young Life College
