“I joined FFA in high school because I was taking shop class
and I wanted to compete in the Metal Art competition. My favorite project I
made in shop was a basalt column replica made completely out of metal. My goal
was initially to pursue a career in welding, but my high school sweetheart and
I decided to start a family at a young age. I am now a stay at home mom of a 2
year old boy and 4 year old girl.
I grew up on a farm, and since a young age I wanted to show livestock at the fair. My junior year I finally decided to do so. Go big or go home, so I decided to show a steer! Doing it all on my own, I got a loan and made my dreams come true. It was everything I thought it would be and more, I wish I would have started sooner.
FFA taught me many things such as my strong work ethic, how to budget for and pay for my own things, and that girls can do anything that the guys can do. I am glad I joined FFA.”
