Ever since I was born I have been coming to visit Grand Haven, MI every summer because it is where my dad grew up. I have loved going to the beach, walking downtown, and going to the Front Porch Ice Cream parlor. Grand Haven feels like a second home for me and is very close to Holland, MI. That is one of the major influences that drew me to Hope College. I know the area pretty well, and I could not be more happy with the decision I made for college.
Watching the eclipse was a unique experience, but then I saw this clip of a Fox News Reporter who was making fun of the whole thing and thought it was hilarious. Now, I have become very interested in the news over the past few years, and I enjoy watching Fox News because they are fair and balanced unlike some news stations. Fox News has become my go to for breaking news and the reporters can sometimes be very entertaining, just like Shepard Smith in this video.
RunMichigan.com is the website where I sign up for 5ks, 10ks, and half marathons. I love to run so I am always on the lookout for races near me. Running has become apart of me over the past few years ever since I joined the Track and Field team during my junior year in high school.
Letters to Juliet is one of my favorite movies because of the love story portrayed and the setting in Verona, Italy. After I graduate from college I plan on moving to Europe; hopefully to Italy, Spain, or Switzerland. The European culture contrasts in many ways to that in North America, and from first hand experience I have been able to gain a deeper appreciation for the European way of life. Also, I would love to have a romance similar to the one told in this movie.
Young Living Essential Oils has become a part of my life over the past year. I diffuse essential oils for many reasons whether I need to be energized or fall asleep. They work wonders and smell fantastic. Also, the main reason I became interested in them was because the best biology teacher I have ever had introduced me to them because she would use them in the classroom.
Notre Dame Preparatory is the High School I attended, and I participated in many sports including Golf, Softball, Track, and Cross Country. Track and cross country were my favorite sports, and allowed me to find a true passion for running.
