Community College: Grand Rapids Community College

Hometown: Grand Rapids, MI

High School: Northview High School

Major at Hope: Chemistry major

What do you find exciting or interesting about your major?

Everything; learning how the world works and how things change and interact on a molecular basis.

What are your career plans at this time?

Graduate school.

Describe your summer research project.

Lots of variety. In the latest group we look at the electronic behavior and properties of highly excitable unstable molecules using laser spectroscopy.

What are some of your favorite activities outside of your school work?

Riding my GSX-R 750 motorcycle, participating in extracurricular events that I never was part of before, and meeting/hanging out with friends.

What were some influences on your decision to attend Hope?

The level of research, helpfulness and friendliness of the professors, the smaller class sizes, and (quite significantly) the overall atmosphere at Hope/in Holland - people are uniquely friendlier and nicer than anyplace else that I have ever been.
