Why I love HopeWithout a doubt it is the relationships I have made since I first set foot on Hope's campus. Whether with fellow students, professors, coaches or other Hope staff, lifelong friendships started here for me.
Favorite Artist and AlbumMy taste in music is rather random. I love country, 80's rock and stuff from the 70's, but some of my favorite artists include Tim McGraw, Zac Brown Band, George Strait, Natasha Bedingfield, Peter Cetera, One Republic, 38 Special, Little River Band and Kenny Rogers. Like I said...RANDOM!
Favorite TV Show and MovieTV: Anything on HGTV and Modern Family
MOVIE: I'm a sucker for anything romantic or involving sports, but a happy ending is a MUST!
Best thing about Holland, Michigan8th Street and the beach!
