What is your Favorite FFA Memory? My favorite FFA memory was getting my State Degree and attending conventions. I have met so many people while attending conventions and love the fact that there are lots of people out there who care about Ag just as much as I do. I was also very happy when I got my State Degree, I spent a lot of hours trying to make everything perfect so when I finally was able to walk on stage and get my degree it was a really great feeling of accomplishment.

What is one thing you cannot live without? My dogs (Hank and Iris) are definitely my favorite part of coming home from school every day because no matter what type of day I've had they are always excited to see me and that makes me feel so much better.

What are your future plans? I plan on attending The Ohio State University. I will be starting at their Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI) which is Wooster, Ohio. Then my junior year I will move to the Columbus campus and finish my major there. I plan on majoring in Agricultural Communications with a minor in Animals Sciences and will be getting my Bachelor's Degree. I have an undecided career but would love to be working with an Ag Company.

Something you may not know about me: I love to read and listen to music. On the weekends you can usually find me with my nose in a book or my headphones in. I love being able to read a good book and discover new authors, same with songs and artist! My favorite part about books are its a whole world you are able to imagine in your head and everyone has their own different visual of the book. I am able to experience a whole other world in just under 300 pages and I think that's pretty amazing.
