What is one lesson you have learned as a state FFA officer?
As a state officer, one of the main lessons I have learned is enjoy every moment. State office has a one year time limit and you get out what you put in. That is what we all need to be told because not everything has a timeline in life, but time is never limitless. You choose how you are going to experience every moment, but I have learned over the past almost year that I was looking past many moments and not fully enjoying the moment.
If you could be any food, what would you be and why?
How do you like to eat your steak, maybe well-done or maybe rare? Though we all like ours cooked a little different, we are all eating the same food: steak. I would be a steak for that reason, as people may really enjoy it or do not eat it. They also like all different things about the steak.
What is one opportunity that you'd recommend trying at the Wisconsin FFA Convention this June?
One opportunity I highly recommend is taking the time to meet someone new, whether that be sitting by someone during a session or simply introducing yourself to someone in the hallway. This a time when so many members with similar interests as you are in one building, so take this as a challenge to meet new people in June.
