FFA has challenged me to push past my comfort zone and expand on the definition of a leader. By helping me develop lifelong leadership skills, FFA has given me the confidence to pursue opportunities I wouldn't have before.
Being a part of FFA has allowed me to find my place in agriculture and the world. The people I've met and the experiences I've had in this organization have taught me to unconditionally serve others, advocate for the things I believe in most, and never be scared of working outside of my comfort zone.
Without this organization, I would have never been able to find my passion for NC agriculture and my passion for teaching agriculture. I know that North Carolina FFA is and will be a catalyst for student success because the community provides encouragement for young leaders to do their best.
For me, FFA was fuel to a fire in my youth. My parents owned a nursery and landscaping business and I had a passion for plants and people. FFA led me to pursue that at NCSU, and after years in the ag industry, I decided to share that passion with young people through Ag Ed & FFA.
