A Mississippi transplant, Hope loves calling the Ravenswood neighborhood home because of the artistic and welcoming community that reminds her of the best parts of her native home. As an artist and actor, she loves being part of a team that strives to make Chicago a better place for all people. She takes inspiration from everywhere, and enjoys bringing other artists and community members together. When she isn't at Ponnopozz, Hope can be found at the library, home working on a project, running, seeing live music or theatre, or at a local restaurant or brewery with friends (or a book). Although she is an aspiring early bird, she often stays up much later than she should.
