I am the 2017-2018 chapter historian and FFA is very important to me. Without being in FFA I would not be able to do the thing I love to do show pigs. Showing pigs has brought out a better person and me I'm not near as shy as I used to be and i'm no longer afraid to step out of my comfort zone and that is all because I joined FFA. Pretty much everybody on my dad's side of the family have either been FFA or has been FFA officers one time or another during their high school career so me being in FFA and becoming an officer was pretty much a required thing for me to do. I was kinda iffy about joining FFA my freshman year because I thought I knew everything about animals and farms being that my dad is a farmer but I was wrong I was also not aware that FFA is more than just farming and animals its so much more although the farming and animals is my favorite part about FFA. I have learned a lot being in FFA and I know i'm going to learn more begging that know I'm and officer. I am very happy I joined FFA even though I really didn’t want to because if I didn’t I would still be the shy kid that always stayed in their comfort zone that I was before I joined FFA.
