I would never have guessed right if you asked me where my path took me. Life is about opportunity and taking a risk to be the best version of yourself.

Passion is defined by a strong emotion. As I get up in front of any audience, I feel strongly about the message I can give my listeners. Messages vary depending on what the topic is I am to deliver. My motivational speeches are what I am most passionate about.

My goal is to help ONE person “Take Their Own PATH”.

Recently, even during this crazy, intense pandemic I have had the honor to go into schools and speak to FFA members. I think back to what I went through in school and how I can guarantee that some the kids I am meeting are battling a battle that NO one can relate to.

I speak directly with them and interact. I tell them they are not alone and to be KIND. Sharing my story of what I went through and the doubt that some placed on me just for my upbringing. Strongly, I share with them they can do anything they set their mind to. I express you can come from an entirely different lifestyle and by one single choice they can succeed.

We discuss it won’t be easy but it will be worth it. How the future of agriculture depends on them. Opportunities are endless if they work hard in life for what they want to do. 

We are our own person and no matter what life throws at us we can go down the road to success that you never knew existed.

THANK YOU FFA Teachers for seeing a need for this topic in the school system and the possibility to make a difference!
