FFA and Agriculture Education have served as a stepping stone for a huge change in my life. It allowed me to find my passion for animal agriculture, and equipped me with the skill set needed to make a positive difference in the lives of so many people around me. FFA has taught me that it's easy to dream something, but it takes heart and soul to achieve those dreams.
To me, FFA is a community of students striving to become more professional, service-minded, and hard working. FFA has given me role models and mentors who teach me more about what it means to be a steward of the natural resources we are given.
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.
Agriculture education has made an incredible impact on my life. Taking an agriculture class in high school put me on the path to connect with people from all over the world, traveling to new countries, and finding my passion in teaching. It's exciting to share all the opportunities FFA has to offer with my students.
