What were your favorite subjects in high school? Gym
Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? My brother, Bobby
If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation: "After graduating from the nursing program I hope to be working in a children's hospital and furthering my education in pediatrics as a nurse practitioner."
List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you: Isaiah 41:10 - "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." I have been through many trials and struggles in my life at a young age and this is a verse I will always come back to. It promises me that God has called me to a higher purpose and that the struggles I am facing are only temporary and he will provide me with the strength to get through it.
What is your favorite memory from a community service project you’ve been involved at Hope? "My favorite memory would be one from Dance Marathon when I participated as a 24 hour dancer. At the very end when the numbers turned and we found out how much we had made to donate to Helen Devos Children's hospital and to watch the families reactions and tears was truly priceless."
Where is your favorite place on campus? "Van Andel Soccer Stadium because it brings all of my teammates and best friends together and allows us all to temporarily escape from schoolwork and college's other distractions."

What is your favorite pre-game music? Anything I can sing along to with my teammates
If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be? "I've always wanted to be talented in volleyball but that requires hand-eye coordination and grace which I do not have in the slightest."
What is the best advice you’ve ever received? A wise alum by the name of Elizabeth Perkins told me to repeat the verse of Isaiah 40:31 through a whisper or in my head whenever I was having a hard time mentally on the field. Whether it was in the middle of a game or during a fitness test. This verse says "but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." It reminded me that the Lord has given me the strength to carry on and that as long as I put my trust in him my legs or my abilities will not fail me.
