Why did you join FFA?
I joined FFA as a middle school quiz bowl extraordinaire. I did not necessarily want to be on the team and spend my†Friday†nights studying with my coach, who also happened to be my mom. However, I soon as I said the creed as a freshman, FFA had me hooked. I joined FFA to be a part of an agriculture community beyond my own dairy experience, I joined FFA to be leader and a follower, I joined FFA to work as a team to better the agriculture community.
What was your Supervised Agricultural Experience?
My Supervised Agricultural Experience included dairy proficiency. I grew up on my family's 450 registered Holstein farm and was mainly involved with the calves. However, with more experience and practice on the farm, my responsibilities started to grow. Currently, I am able to help with field work, dairy health, facility cleaning and continue to work with the calves.
What made you want to be a State FFA Officer?
My mom once texted me a quote that I feel captures the reason of why I wanted to be a state officer. It stated "Our job in this lifetime is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it." - Steven Pressfield This quote reminds me that we need to pursue our talents and not try to be what we think others want us to be -be true to yourself! I have found myself within the FFA and agriculture industry. I hope to help other FFA members do the same.† I wish to teach how every single person is unique and has something special to offer to the FFA; and FFA has something to offer every member.
If you could choose from any song in the world, what would be your theme song?
If I could choose a theme song, it would be†Man in the Mirror†by Michael Jackson. In this song he explains how changing the world starts by simply looking in the mirror and realizing how you need to be yourself. I believe this song is very important in learning how to overcome and accept yourself in order to help others.
