I joined the Heyworth FFA, because I thought that I would learn a lot from this class especially since I would like to become a vet and work in an agriculture field. I also thought that I would gain more leadership skills and other necessary skills that would be necessary if not helpful later in life. Some of these are: tying a tie, interviewing skills, shop skills (working with certain tools), and lots of other things. I also wanted to be part of an organization that holds very high standards, and has so much respect by lots of people and business. Those are some of the reasons why I joined the FFA.
My most challenging experience has been my record book and the proficiency awards contest. This is the contest where our record books are judged and graded on how good our daily entries, financial records, skills learned, and other things are. It takes a long time and a lot of work to get everything in our record books. Once its all put into binders and organized, we then had to sit in an interview with a panel of judges that discussed our record book and the stuff we did. Overall its been a great learning experience.
The people that have had the greatest impact would be my parents and my grandparents. Some of my closest friends have also had a huge impact. They all have always supported me throughout my life. They've pushed me through thick and thin in everything that I have done. Without them I wouldn't be where I am today.
A million dollars is a lot of money and so with that, I would try and put it to the best uses possible. The first thing I would do would be to get rid of all of my family's debt. After that I would probably buy a small farm, a nice Ford truck. Following that I would then give some to local programs or charitys. Then with whatever I had left I would put in the bank and let the interest make it grow.
My favorite thing about FFA would have to be all the trips we take to different places. I've was one of the lucky few who got to go to Washington D.C. on the Washington Leadership Conferance. I've also been able to attend many conventions, several of farm shows, and lots of CDE's. At each of these events I was able to meet lots of new people and experience things I may never have gotten the chance to. I've had an awsome time these last four years and would definitly do it all over again!
