My name is Sabrina Cope. I am an agriculture major at the University of Missouri. My emphasis areas within my major are agricultural business management, plant science and science and agricultural journalism. I am originally from Truxton, Missouri.
Production agriculture has always played a large role in my life. I grew up on my family’s beef cattle and sheep farm. In addition to four-legged livestock, my family also raises freshwater shrimp in one of the ponds on the farm.
In addition to discussing agriculture, some of my favorite things to do are hang out with friends, exercise and read whenever I have free time.
After graduation, I hope to work for an agriculture-based company in the sales or marketing departments. I want to be able to work with individuals who want to expand their business and make agriculture more interesting and relevant to the general public.
I am excited to write for Corner Post again, expand my portfolio, network with professionals, obtain more of a hands-on experience with writing and meet new people.
I was a sales intern with Southwestern Advantage, an educational company, in the past. With this internship, I lived on the east coast for the whole summer selling books door-to-door. I currently work at Dicks Sporting Goods in Columbia.
Other things I am involved with on campus are National Agrimarketing Association and my sorority, Sigma Sigma Sigma.
