What is your favorite component of the 4-H Program? *
My favorite component of 4-H is the workshops. We all learn by doing and 4-H helps put that into play.
What does 4-H mean to you? *
4-H has taught me to learn my qualities as a leader and utilize them in any type of situation. 4-H has also taught me how to understand others and accept them for their positive aspects that might differ from mine.
What is your most memorable 4-H moment? *
My most memorable 4-H moment so far was my first experience at State 4-H Congress. I really enjoyed my first Congress because I learned so much about myself and how many opportunities I had in front of me that I could someday accomplish. There were so many 4-Hers and agents there that I knew I could look up to.

I am a true leader in 4-H because I am an active member that brings ideas and a positive attitude towards every event and meeting. I make sure that everyone is involved and their voice is heard.
If you were an animal, what would you be and why? *
If I were an animal, I would be a dog. Dogs are awesome and a man’s best friend.
