Why did you join FFA?
I joined FFA after taking my first Ag class, Animal Science I, my freshman year. I loved how it challenged me to grow as a person, so I started getting more involved with different activities. I stayed in FFA because of the family that I found in it and the connections that I made.
What was your Supervised Agricultural Experience?
My SAE is Agriscience Research; I got started in my SAE by competing in Agriscience Fair through FFA my freshman year, and I continued to do more and more agriscience research throughout my four years in high school.
What made you want to be a State FFA Officer?
Think back to the first time you put on your FFA jacket, the first time you competed while wearing it, or your first convention, listening to the speakers with motivation filling you. Think about that first moment in your FFA career, where you got goosebumps because you were so overwhelmed with what the organization had to offer. Whatever this moment was for you individually, it was probably when you decided that FFA was something that you wanted to dedicate your time to. I ran for state office because I want to work with members who know the potential of FFA and believe in the future of agriculture, just like I do. I plan to listen to and work with members in Section 10 to continue your success and to improve programs to help you develop your full potential. I also want to work with future members: those students who haven't found that goosebumps moment for them in FFA. I would like to help them realize how much they can grow and experience as an FFA member by getting involved with a variety of activities-regardless of their background. As a state officer, I will be there for those goosebump moments-because FFA isn't solely about what you accomplish while you are a member. It's also about those moments of growth, where you are scared and excited and proud, all at the same time.
If you could choose from any song in the world, what would be your theme song?
At the risk of sounding cliché, I would say that my theme song is Humble & Kind by Tim McGraw. Those two qualities are aspects of my character that I try to improve every single day. I think they really encompass what qualities I want to show through when I am interacting with others. "When you get where you're going, don't forget turn right back around and help the next one in line." One of the things that I try to prioritize most is helping others, and always making sure to make it easier for them to finish the task they are working on.
