During my high school career I was blessed to find the Future Farmers of America, also known as the FFA,. The FFA is an organization that stands over half a million members strong. The FFA has prepared me for my future significantly more than any other group or organization I have been involved in. The mission of this program is, “FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.” I believe it has done just that for me; this organization has made a profound impact on my life. The two events that have impacted my life are Creed Speaking and Job Interview. Creed Speaking has made a tremendous effect on my speaking …show more content…
During my time on the team, I have been the Sentinel for one year and the Secretary for two years. Being on the officer team has helped me become more organized and a better leader. From helping to organize meetings with the other officers, to attending FFA conventions, I have gained a great deal of responsibility.
Future Farmers of America has also provided me with many opportunities to help make an impact in my community through volunteer work. Every year our officer team helps the YMBL, Young Men’s Business League, of Southeast Texas to put on a Special Needs Rodeo. Many school’s life skills programs from all over the area come to enjoy a day where they can be themselves and have fun. There is nothing more rewarding to me than to see these kids happy and to give them the chance to feel included.
I have been incredibly blessed with all the opportunities the FFA has given me. The FFA takes students today and transforms them into leaders for tomorrow. Without the many opportunities that this program has given me, I would not be the person I am today. I believe that the FFA has truly prepared me for my future in ways I can not even express and for that I am forever

Some other possible ways to be honored is if you are an officer or participated in an SAE which is a Supervised Agricultural Experience. The FFA Alumni are also recognized at the banquets. Another tradition in FFA is Creed speaking where members recite the organization’s Creed, which was written by E.M. Tiffany in 1928 and adopted in 1930. At the beginning of every opening ceremony FFA members must rise and say, “To practice brotherhood, honor agricultural opportunities and responsibilities and develop those qualities of leadership which an FFA member should possess.” These words are a guideline as to why members
My goal as a state officer will be to bring our team together to set a plan to promote FFA and agriculture to those we will be teaching in chapter visits. Our team will try to find out about different associations within schools and reach out to them to see how we can intermingle all the different clubs and connect how their personal interests in those clubs can be innovative in agriculture. I think this will be a great deal of advocacy for all clubs and schools as we bring together diversity and knowledge to share about our passions for what we

My first time I attended Camp K I was in 8th grade. I saw what the officers contributed to the members, the relationships they had with one another and the impact they put upon me, I knew i wanted to become a HOSA Florida State officer! By continuing my HOSA membership through my senior year of high school and becoming a regional and club officer I knew I wanted to end my senior year strong and become a state officer. By being a past club and regional officer I believe I have all the attributes to become a state officer and can contribute a substantial amount of contributions.
This opportunity not only helped me make new relationships with people in my chapter but showed me a glimpse of my potential as an FFA member. I also improved my confidence in public speaking. List the Career Development Events that you have participated in. Explain your experience and how it has helped
When I first did the vet science CDE, I was pretty set that I wanted to be a veterinarian, but by doing the contest I was able to learn more about the job, and that it just wasn't the career for me. So I started looking into other careers, discovered wildlife ecology, and began to particpate in events and take courses that would prepare me for said career. I tried out entomology judging, and really developed a passion for insects by competing- an interest I would not have known if not for the FFA. I feel that some of the major attributes that I can apply later in life, have come through my
Little Shy Issac, now knew what to think about before an interview and could easily do it for next year’s process if I decided to. I’ve attended numerous COLTs (Chapter Officer Leadership Training), a 24 hour FFA officer training that happens three times a year, learning about Time management, new ways to bring members to your chapter, brainstorming ideas, and the list goes on. Additionally, I’ve attended Peoria Mini Leadership camp’s, National FFA Convention, NDLC camp out’s, District CDE competitions, and local chapter officer training with a private session with former state FFA officers, and countless hours during both chapter and officer meetings. During and after each of these, I’ve learned how to enhance my abilities to become a better leader, to get to know my colleagues better and understand how they think, and most importantly, I’ve learned about what type of person I’d like to become and who I am. Not to mention the revamping of my social skills after being in an isolated area for countless months only talking to people I already know and are comfortable
Looking back on my four years as an FFA member of the New Lexington FFA Chapter, I can name several skills I’ve learned that I truly believe got me to where I am today. I remember my freshman self. Too nervous and shy to stand up and say the FFA motto in front of my Plant and Animal Science class. Twelve short words to recite for bonus points in class. I knew it, but was just too shy to stand up.
It has shaped me into the person I’m today and allowed me to have the friends and memories I do today. Running for office in the FFA is a huge deal, whether it's at thelocal, state, or national level. It is a position of respect and responsibility among FFA members. Making the decision to pursue a position was a huge one. I was very back-and-forth about it.
The opportunities that are offered are endless. Anything you can think of, to a certain extent has something involved with this great organization. It’s open to middle, and high school students, as well if involved can be college students. This program is not just for a bunch of farm guys that wear cowboy boats, its relatable for students that live in town, and don’t have livestock or crops as well. This great organization is based on agricultural education that provides life-changing experiences for its members.
This event changed my life for the better and without going through that tough time I would not have been able to see the light of all situations, in reality and when I
I am pursing a degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. I am passionate about education and excited to share the joy of learning with students. The perspective of wonder and sense of excitement that children bring into education motivates me daily. Teaching can leave a lasting impression in a child’s life and offers a special opportunity to shape the bright young minds of future generations. While many professions can be impactful, I believe the qualities of the person in the career position to be the most influential.
