Growing up in rural Minnesota, I have witnessed many agricultural opportunities at home and within my local community. My family ingrained in me a strong appreciation for honesty, respect, responsibility, and generosity in agriculture and entrepreneurship.
I am pursuing my Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Minnesota College of Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences. I strive to be a student leader and actively participate in many opportunities within agriculture.

Whether I am selling agricultural products, teaching farming techniques, researching and applying technology, or starting an agricultural-based business, I look forward to establishing my future in agriculture.
