Being teenagers, my sisters loved “High School Musical.” They learned every song, and watched it over and over again. Regardless of the fact that I tried to stay strong through it all, I eventually fell and watched the movies with them a couple of times, and even learned the songs… and yes, I also sang along a couple of times too.
Why do I talk about my sisters and “High School Musical” in a Hope College blog you ask? Well I’ll tell you why; I do this because family is a defining aspect of me, and it’s all that matters in the end. In the same way, Hope College has come to become my second family, or as they would like to say, it’s like a “home away from home.”
In the same way, Nykerk, Pre-Law Club and even the silly and funny things we do at the Phonathon have become my version of “High School Musical,” and the lovely people that I have met too are my Hope family. I’m really glad to be able to write and share on the things I enjoy here at Hope, and who knows? Maybe eventually, I’ll start to sing along too.
