1.) Why FFA?:

FFA has taught me much from leadership and responsibility to social and communication skills. By serving as vice president and as one of the upperclassmen, I am in no doubt a leader. I participate in many FFA contests and conventions. I encourage other members to participate in FFA events, including students who are not in FFA to visit one of our monthly meetings to get the feel of it. I spread the word that FFA is FFFun.

2.) FFA project:

I raised broiler chickens as my SAE project. Raising chickens came with a lot of responsibility as well as time. I made sure to feed them daily and change their bedding weekly. I learned a lot about broilers and their needs. I enjoyed raising them as well as eating them.

4.) Career path:

No matter what I decide on going into, being in FFA has helped me in pursuing my future plans.

5.) College plans:

I plan on attending Iowa State University and double-majoring in horticultural science and genetics. I am interested in plants and ways to enhance them. FFA has helped me to become more involved outside the class room and to learn about different things.

6.) FFA acvtivities:

I am a very active member in FFA. I have done everything from selling fruit to livestock judging and everything in between. My favorite activities were conventions that I attended because I met other FFA members and built friendships that will last a lifetime.
