Also, I love how this organization educates the youth by providing several opportunities to learn about our environment at the livestock show.

When people grow up, they always dream of being successful and becoming something important, such as a doctor or a nurse. My childhood and present-day dream is to become a Veterinarian Technician. I chose this occupation because of my passion for animals and my big heart. This career consists of multiple tasks being asked of the person, and being able to multi-task and have multiple skills.

One of my favorite parts of volunteering at STAR is being able to see the impact that we are able to make in the lives of the riders and their families. It is truly humbling to see so many individuals with mental and physical illnesses grateful for the opportunity to ride a horse. I have grown tremendously from my experience, which has impacted me in areas outside of STAR. Now, when being around someone with a disability, I can better understand what he or she is really facing. My role as a volunteer also allowed me to create authentic connections with the riders.
