When I first started preparing to apply to college, I considered a few factors including what my end career goal was, the location of the school, and some of my family preferences. After a lot of consideration, I knew Penn State was the right fit.  With over 275 majors, 17 of which are in the College of Ag I knew that even if I changed my mind on what I wanted to major in there would be something here for me.  So, I applied and was accepted.

Favorite Penn State Activity:
My favorite Penn State activity is being involved in clubs. The variety of clubs on campus allows every student to be involved no matter their interest. The two clubs I am most active in are LEAD Society and Collegiate Farm Bureau.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
This question is tough! I would love to either be a high school agricultural teacher, a lawyer, or a curriculum director.

Proudest Achievement in life so far:
I am most proud of being hired as a National FFA Member Leadership Series Conference Facilitator. I am so excited to continue my involvement with the FFA at a national level and give back to an organization that has developed the younger leader I have become.

My hobbies include raising livestock, coaching young livestock showman, binge watching TLC shows, and petting every dog I see. Don’t worry I always ask the dog owner first!

If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?
I would be a goat in a petting zoo! I would get all the treats and all the love and be constantly a happy little goat!

Dream Vacation Spot:
My dream vacation spot would be a cruise visiting all seven continents!
