I joined 4-H as a cloverbud when I was 5 years old. My older brother and sister were both members so I was very excited to be a part of 4-H. My favorite 4-H activities are showing pigs and meeting new people.

When I joined 4-H, I was very involved and I really liked trying different projects. When I was in 8th grade, I had thoughts about quitting but I stuck with it. I've made many friends through it and because of them I am the person who I am today.

A little more than a year ago, I applied and was excepted onto the Wisconsin Leadership Council. I was nervous about speaking in front of big groups and today I can give speeches in front of young kids, my peers and adults. This is just one of the many things I've learned in 4-H.

When I first joined 4-H, I didn't know much about it except that it enabled me to show my horse. Since then, I've learned that it's so much more and I've really tried to take advantage of every leadership opportunity it's given me.

When I was in 2nd grade, I told my mom that I wanted to show at the county fair. Little did I realize how much more it was. Fast forward 11 years—I was club and county President, an Ambassador, attended National Congress and made a new 4-H family.
