Why are you involved in these activities/organizations, and what is your favorite? I’m involved in these activities because they teach good leadership and time management skills. They are all fun, but my favorite would have to be FFA.

If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be and how would you change it? I would change the way people look at animal agriculture. How they perceive things. To teach them and help them understand animal agriculture. To teach and show them how things are actually done on farms.
