The past six months have brought manylessons, joys and incredible people. The experiences have been breathtaking: standing on aship that was carrying U.S.-grown corn at the port of Nagoya in Japan; having ‘small’ butmeaningful conversations with members from around the country; or a conversation withmy neighbor on the airplane. All of these experiences have taught me about people and howagriculture cannot be surpassed in its importance.These experiences have taken me to 14 states and Japan for the following reasons Partnership Tours: California, Tennessee, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, TexasState Conventions: Idaho, South Dakota, California, Rhode IslandChapter Visits: North Carolina, Indiana, ArkansasOther Experiences: Goodwill tour to Japan; Board of Directors, Department of Education,and Department of Agriculture meetings in Washington D.C.; Ag Education Summit inFlorida.It is truly remarkable to see how diverse agriculture is nation/worldwide and howincredible people are involved. Through the places that I have traveled, it is still special tocome home to my family and friends in South Dakota that makes me the happiest. Y’all havechanged me for the better and make me want to become the best I can be. Thank you forbelieving in me!I often get the question: “What is your favorite part?” For me, it is truly the little thingsthat make the biggest difference: an encouraging word, listening ear or even having real,meaningful conversations. Giving because we can and loving others because it is right hastruly made this year amazing for me.M.
