ACCOMPLISHMENTS
MIAA Player of the Week (9/12/19); MIAA Academic Honor Roll (2019)

GET TO KNOW

Why did you choose to attend Hope College? It’s academic reputation, location, community and it’s strong athletic programs

What were your favorite subjects in high school? Math, biology and art.

Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? My mom is my biggest role model because she always puts others first. She is a teacher and a volleyball coach, and at home I would always see her spending countless hours planning a practice or designing a class to best benefit her players or students. As one of her players in highschool, I was inspired by her drive to succeed and her patience with every player, no matter their skill level. She has helped me become a mentally stronger player and person. 

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Corinthians 9:24 because it’s a good reminder of why I train so hard in volleyball and why I put so much time into school; that I have a goal to succeed and be the best player and student I can. 

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? The protein power bowl from Phelps because it’s delicious and fuels me up for big matches.

What is your favorite movie and why? The Princess Bride because my Grandpa introduced me to it and I can watch it a million times without it ever getting old.

What type of pregame music do you enjoy? Pretty much any upbeat pop or hip hop.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? “Fit till you make it” because even if I’m not feeling confident or energized for a game, if I fake it long enough I will eventually start to actually feel it, plus it’s encouraging for teammates to see confidence in others.

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).  Dance Marathon and possibly a SEED trip.
