One can often learn a lot about a person by what they like to do with their day; and so I’d like to share a little bit about myself through a day that was not too many moons ago.
My day started with a morning run of 3 miles. I LOVE to run! Running has always been a fun challenge for me. I ran cross country and track in high school, and did several road races over the years. Most recently, I ran the Bill Snyder Half-Marathon back in May.
|I also had the opportunity of meeting the man himself, Coach Bill Snyder!|

Then, I got ready for the day and had breakfast. I never miss this meal because frankly, who doesn’t like some waffles or eggs & bacon, or my personal favorite–breakfast smoothies!
Next, I went to Topeka and met with some of the Kansas Department of Agriculture and Governor Brownback’s staff for his Ag tour week. From there we flew out to Southwest Kansas (S/O to our SWD FFA members) and toured several aspects of Kansas agriculture. I absolutely loved learning about the dairy farm we went to and the greater potential for cotton in SW Kansas. Educating others about agriculture, like I experienced that day, is what I want to do with my life and is why I’m majoring in Ag Education here at KSU.
On the plane ride back to Topeka, I did what I always do when flying: look at the breathtaking view from above the clouds or the beautiful earth that is far below. I’ve always loved flying, and traveling in general for that matter. I’ve grown up in a military family that like any other has done its fair share of moving from state to state (Iowa, Alabama, New York, Arizona and Kansas in case you were wondering). Traveling has become a part of my life and leaves me wanting to continue on adventures!
