Bloomer FFA Chapter

What influenced you to join FFA?

My older sister was the first FFA member in our family, and I knew that I wanted to be just like her. As soon as I got into 7th grade, I attended FIRE Conference and joined the FFA Quiz Bowl team. My chapter in Bloomer is affiliated, so I was automatically an FFA member because I was in an agriculture class, but it was the opportunities for growth and the positive environment that kept me involved.

What inspired you to serve as a State Officer?

Throughout my last two years in high school, I had an Agricultural Education Supervised Agricultural Experience. This gave me the chance to play an active role in teaching students the importance of agriculture in their daily lives, and it made me decide to pursue Agricultural Education as my career. I knew that I wanted to be a State Officer because they get a very unique opportunity to serve, grow, and learn with FFA members across Wisconsin. That is an experience that you can’t trade for anything else.

What are your favorite FFA experiences?

I loved the Forestry Career Development Event and the Extemporaneous Speaking Leadership Development Event! However, my absolute favorite was my Agricultural Education Supervised Agricultural Experience. Not only did I get to see students grow in confidence, skills, and knowledge over time, I also got to learn from my advisors. The relationships I built with other students will impact me forever, and I will always be grateful for how my advisors pushed me to get outside of my comfort zone.

What are your future plans?

I am currently attending the University of Wisconsin-River Falls for Agricultural Education with the hopes of someday becoming an agricultural educator. I would like to stay in Wisconsin and continue to serve FFA members as an FFA advisor as well.

What is something members should know about you?

Trees, rocks, woodburning and downhill skiing are just a few of my favorite things. I also enjoy “dabbling” in new activities because I love learning. If you have a unique hobby, let me know – I would love to hear about it!
