Why you wanted to serve as 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 - but instead be true to yourself! I have found myself within the FFA and agriculture industry, and I hope to help other FFA members do the same. I wish to share how every single person is unique and has something special to offer to the FFA; and FFA has something to offer every member.
What was your favorite part of the 90th National FFA Convention?
At the 90th National FFA Convention, the officer team was able to see all of the sessions and watch all of the keynote speakers, retiring addresses, and all of the award winners. There is something special the national officers do every year, they get to thank their families. My favorite part of the 90th National FFA Convention was watching the national officers' video's where they had the opportunity to thank and introduce their families.
What is your favorite holiday tradition?
My favorite holiday tradition is being able to work with my whole family on our dairy farm. In order to finish up on time, all of my siblings and I head out early to help my dad, while my mom stays in to cook a holiday meal for our employees. Having this tradition brings together what my family truly believes in: faith, family, and farming.
