Why did you choose to attend Hope College? There is an extremely strong science program here and I knew I wanted to get involved in research. I also knew I wanted to extend my athletic career into college and running for the cross country team has been one of the best decisions I've made: I'm so thankful to be surrounded by such a driven group of individuals that have become like a family to me.

What were your favorite subjects in high school? AP Bio 

Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? And describe how. Kelly Peregrine has been one of my role models. Although she is my peer, her strength and leadership shines in everything she applies herself to. My parents have also been role models for me because they have taught me how to work hard and follow my passions and interests. 

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? Cliff Bars

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you: John 8:7 "He that is without sin among you, let him be the first to cast a stone at her" is my favorite Bible verse because it grants me the perspective to remember to live humbly.  

What is your favorite pre-game music? "All These Things That I've Done" by The Killers

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? I would dance either ballet or modern because it's fun!

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Do your best and forget the rest
