Why did you choose to attend Hope College? I liked the small college atmosphere, the people are very friendly, and I liked the science program here.

What were your favorite subjects in high school? Science

Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? And describe how. My parents, growing up they taught me the importance of hard work, graciousness, and compassion for others. I would not be the person I am today without them.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation. I plan to go to medical school after graduation.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. John 1:5 "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." This verse constantly reminds me that while I may be struggling at the moment, something good can come out of any situation I come across, no matter how small that good thing may be. I keep this verse in mind when I start to lose faith during bad times, and remember that kindness and positivity do more good than anger and frustration.

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? Watermelon and cantaloupe

Where is your favorite place on campus? Why? I love going to the rotunda in Martha Miller. The view is beautiful and especially uplifting when trying to study!

What is your favorite pre-game music? I always listen to "Lose Yourself" by Eminem

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be and why? Snowboarding. I'd love to be able to do tricks on the half pipe!

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Do what you are passionate about, not what others think you would enjoy doing. The only person whose opinion of you matters is your own.
