Years ago, you could find me sporting a shirt that read, “Reading, Writing, Socializing” while attending writing camps during summer break from elementary school. It wasn’t until later that I discovered my passion for agriculture. I joined FFA in high school and I had no idea what life changing experiences I was about to have. FFA led me to create my own business, “Beauty and the Bees,” where I harvest and process honey and beeswax into lip balms and other products. My passion for agriculture and agriculture education brought me to the University of Missouri to major in science and agricultural journalism. I know writing for Corner Post will give me an outlet to communicate with a broad audience about agriculture and I’m excited to see what this semester has in store!
