How has FFA prepared you for your future aspirations: Joining FFA has helped me better my life in so many ways. I’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime. FFA has helped me work toward my goals that lie ahead in my future by preparing me for public speaking, showing leadership and working together with other people in groups. My goals were to overcome speaking publicly and being able to step up and be a leader.

Special thanks: I would like to give a special thanks to my mom for pressuring me into joining and also Mrs. (Tiffany) Hoy for not giving up on me and pushing to be my best at everything I was involved in this year, and most of all, my FFA family.
