What has been your favorite thing you've learned or experienced as a State FFA Officer?
One of my favorite experiences as a State FFA Officer has been State Fair. I really enjoyed getting to see FFA member's SAEs in action during livestock shows, seeing members perform in the band and choir, and talking with consumers about where their food comes from. It was great to have so many things I love about FFA all combined into one! Living in a dorm room with several teammates, and spending an entire week at state fair is an experience I will never forget!
What is your favorite Wisconsin FFA Convention Memory?
This question is so hard, because I love many things about state convention! I would have to say one of my favorite experiences was serving as a delegate! I really enjoy discussing issues and matters that were important to Wisconsin FFA. I also enjoyed voting to elect our state officer for the year. Sitting in the room and helping decide our state officer made me feel closer to that state officer and helped me realize I wanted to run for state office as well. I highly recommend volunteering to be a delegate for state convention!
What are your plans after State Office?
After state office, I plan to focus on my schooling at Iowa State. I want to be dedicated to my studies and organizations I will join on campus. I hope to obtain my bachelor's degree in animal science and look to possibly pursue additional schooling. Until I start college this fall, I am looking forward to showing my sheep and pigs at various fairs and shows around the midwest and Wisconsin.
What is one piece of advice you would give to another FFA member or supporter?
Never give up! Looking back there are many times I could have thrown in the towel or called it quits, but I have never given up on my dreams and I have accomplished more than I thought possible. To be successful you have to believe in yourself and your abilities.
