My name is Erin Boedeker, I am a Agricultural Education – Leadership major at the University of Missouri. My emphasis within my major is Communications and Science and Agricultural Journalism. I am originally from Elsberry, Mo. After receiving my degree, my hopes are to take my passion and knowledge for agriculture into the city. I hope to work with a public relations or marketing firm, and work with clients to help the public understand the positive aspects of production agriculture. I am excited to continue writing for Corner Post, to help build my portfolio, network and get a more hands-on experience with writing in general.
