Unfortunately, life happens and I encountered a few setbacks. I ended up needing a few more credits, which pushed my graduation date back. Don't Lose Hope March 31, One of the hardest things to do as a student is to get close to graduation and find out that you need either a few more credit hours or a higher GPA. Many students already have their post-graduation plans laid out — as was, and is, the case with myself.
Permalink When people hear I am majoring in agricultural leadership education, I get many blank faces trying to decipher what this major means. They even wonder why I chose the agriculture industry. As I have continued down my path, I have realized I cannot be angry or upset when people may not understand this industry.
This is a learning experience for both the individual and me.
These are the deciding factors of why I chose agriculture. Dig your roots I come from a small, rural central Illinois town and grew up on a farm. I think of periods of my life in "planting" and "harvesting" seasons and the other periods of times as preparation for the two hectic seasons.
I grew up riding on my grandpa's lap in the combine, riding in the passenger seat in my family's semi with my dad, and driving our Ranger to help pour seed into the planter. Living on a farm sparked my interest in the agriculture industry.
Living on a farm gave me an appreciation of nature, the world around us, and the importance of what my family has been doing for over years.
I dug my roots in the agriculture industry when I was little walking around in my little work boots, and now in my high heels, as I continue down my path in the agriculture industry.
I believe in the future of agriculture Even though I grew up on a farm, I was missing part of a better understanding of the agriculture industry. On the surface, I saw what my family was doing, but thinking deeper, I did not understand the impact Harding Farms had.
My high school agriculture education classes, and now in college, helped me gain a more well-rounded perspective of the industry. It was the years of wearing a blue corduroy jacket learning about livestock, business meetings and recordkeeping that has shaped me into who I am.
The last part of the creed states, "I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life, and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.
Sustainability is key Agriculture has been a major key in the world for centuries, from teaching the basics of planting crops to upcoming technology. Throughout the evolution of agriculture, sustainability has been a huge part of it and I want to be a part of it to help continue this industry down the right path for years to come.
Being sustainable is being able to last throughout all periods of times, the good and the bad. In my opinion, the ultimate goal of the agriculture industry as a whole is continuously working towards feeding the world with sustainable methods.
As fads and tastes change, agriculture will change, too, not only to last but most importantly to help the people we work for. Find your passion One thing I have learned throughout my life is if you are going to do something, do it with passion. Whether it was playing basketball when I was younger or working towards my career today, if you are not passionate about it, then it will make it hard to do.
I am passionate about educating others, not just in the classroom but in every location, about the agriculture industry. My goal in life is to work for an agriculture organization and spread awareness of agriculture.
As time goes on, more and more people are being separated from farming.
Only 2 percent of Americans are farmers, but that 2 percent helps feed the world. There is a large population that does not truly understand the agriculture industry, and I want to help bridge that gap to help others make sound decisions in what they do but also help find others' passions in agriculture.
Be the change When many hear the word "agriculture," farming comes to mind. Even though farming is vital to the agriculture industry, it is much more than farming. More than one in four Illinois jobs are agriculturally related, and they are not just trade jobs.
If you can think of it, there is most likely a career in agriculture. Whether it is animal nutrition, engineering or working in public relations, agriculture has a job for that. I want to work in the agriculture industry because I want to be involved in change and help the future of this industry.
I want to help educate, not just in the classroom, but everyone about what the agriculture industry is and where it is going.Jul 20, · I chose to have a baby because, while I was terrified, the fear didn't outweigh my excitement.
