We All Learn At a Different Pace
What did I learn about myself through my 4-H participation?
I learned that it is not easy to be 16 and on the edge of adulthood.
Head - to clear thinking, when giving your word to someone, think about how it will affect your heart if you buckle to peer pressure and go against your morals and ethics .
Heart - to greater loyalty; loyalty is something that is given freely and cannot be demanded or forced upon someone.
Hands - to larger service, you can only do what you feel is right and work hard to achieve your goals.
Health - to better living; if your word is your honor, and you stand fast to your morals and ethics; loyalty will come to you freely, your goals will be realized, and you will make a difference in the world around you.
I love 4-H !
Peer pressure is one of the hardest things we face; stay true to yourself no matter how hard it is and make a difference!

As I find myself closer to the end of my time in 4-H I want to state that my Heart belongs to the Beef and Agriculture Industry. These last few years I will work to pass the love and knowledge of Beef and Agriculture Industry to the younger 4-H members, before heading off to College to pursue my dream of being an active member of the Beef Industry.
