How did you come about joining GR FFA?  Tell us your “story” – why FFA?

Back in the fifth I wanted to show rabbits with my sisters. Where did this idea of showing rabbits come from? My mom, she raised and even bred rabbits back when she was in middle school. So that’s how I entered FFA but I didn’t really get involved until I started raising steers starting in 7th grade. After my first year I even ran for office and got elected. What FFA activities have you participated in? 

In FFA there are numerous activities that I’ve participated in. To begin the year, I always have a fort bend county steer and bunnies to show. After the fort bend county fair I move into LDEs which I’ve always but one year have participated in Quiz team. Then I move into CDEs which I’ve been at the top of our livestock judging team for years. Throughout the year I’ve participated in most of the community services such as LOL and helping at woman’s shelter. I’ve held and office all my years in high school except my junior year. As you can see I have a busy high school experience with ffa.

What is your favorite FFA memory?   My favorite FFA memory has to be winning reserve grand champion at the fort bend county fair with my English steer. The excitement and joy of achieving a lifelong goal has lasted an endless memory in my brain.

What other things are you interested in? (sports, clubs, civic, church, etc...)    

Thing that interest me the most are FFA as seen from the previous activities I’m involved in, baseball, and Academics in fact I’m ranked in the top 2% of my class.

What are your future plans? My future plans are to graduate high school in 2018 and attend either Rice or Texas A&M to major in some form of engineering.
