All my life, I have been involved in some form of agriculture. Whether it was participating in FFA events in high school, or running around the family farm doing chores, I have always carried a passion for the life that agriculture gave me.
Being the daughter of a poultry farmer and high school teacher, I embraced the small town way of life. So it came as no surprise to my family when I announced my plans to study Agricultural Communications at Auburn University. Following in my father’s very large footsteps, I packed up and made the three hour move from my small, one-red-light, town in North Alabama to The Plains to start a new chapter of my life.
When I arrived in Auburn in the fall of 2014 as a transfer student, I wasted no time getting involved with the College of Agriculture. By doing so, I soon learned that most students in the college were just like me, and that made me feel more at home than I ever thought possible.
Now it’s two years later, and I’m beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel called graduation. I get choked up every time the thought of leaving this place crosses my mind. Thankfully, I know that with the support of the faculty and administration in the College of Agriculture, I will be able to graduate with multiple opportunities waiting for me.
I am eager to advocate for agriculturalists and farmers in my future, I can’t wait to see where the good Lord leads me next.
War Eagle. Forever.
