Favorite FFA Memory

My favorite FFA memory was my first state FFA convention! It was there that I made lifelong friends, got third high individual in the Meat Evaluation and Technology Career Development Event, and first experienced all the craziness and awesomeness of FFA! For the first time, I felt like I was part of something glorious! It was all so exciting and I will never forget the feelings and memories during that time.

Hobbies

Drawing, painting, dancing, and cooking. I also love the outdoors. I listen to the Broadway musical "Hamilton" soundtrack almost every day. I love striving to be healthy through exercise and eating right. I also enjoy studying, preparing, and competing in FFA Career Development Events.

Future Goals

I hope to become a National FFA Officer, serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, serve in humanitarian aid, earn a Bachelor's degree in agricultural education, and create a family of my own. My goal is to never stop learning, exploring, and loving the world I live in.

What do you want to accomplish as a state officer?

I hope to inspire others to grow into better leaders and individuals. I hope to serve Nevada FFA and its members so they can experience all the amazing things FFA has to offer. I hope to become a more hardworking, inspiring, cooperative, creative, responsible, patient, and enthusiastic leader with the help of my teammates. I want Nevada FFA members to remember their FFA experience in a positive way. I hope to play a hand in those life changing experiences for those individuals. I want to open the door to positive opportunities for others and myself. My goal is to learn throughout and enjoy the journey of life while making it so others can as well!
