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.

I've learned there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've brought a big bat. I'm all ready, you see. Now my troubles are going to have trouble with me.Dr. Seuss
And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker". So God made a farmer.Paul Harvey
