Why did you join FFA?
I joined FFA because basically my entire family wore the Blue Jacket, so I wanted to continue the family tradition. But what made me really jump start my FFA experience and made me want to continue in FFA was when I began individualizing my FFA experience by trying new things like FFA Band, community service projects, and Food For America to truly make it my own.
What was your Supervised Agricultural Experience?
I have 3 different Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAEs): Dairy Production, Swine Production, and Agricultural Education. My dairy and swine SAEs mostly consisted of me raising and showing dairy calves and pigs for my county fair. My primary SAE was agricultural education where I gained experience teaching youth about agriculture by coaching my chapter's middle school quiz bowl team and helping lead programs including Partners in Active Learning Support (PALS) and Food for America.
What made you want to be a State FFA Officer?
Looking back on my FFA experiences, I realized that my best memories and learning experiences all came from some of FFA's "hidden treasures," or less known activities from FFA Band and the Agricultural Artwork Contest to Partners in Active Learning Support and Washington Leadership Conference. I absolutely loved individualizing my FFA experience by taking advantage of these unique opportunities, so I wanted to become a State FFA Officer so I can help members discover some of FFA's "hidden treasures" and make the most of their FFA experience.
If you could choose from any song in the world, what would be your theme song?
There are so many great songs, so my answer to this definitely changes depending on the day. But one of my theme songs would be Days like These by Jason Aldean! This song reminds me to embrace the moment and that "days like these, we want to make them last."
