I plan to use my degree to: 
I plan to use my degree to help our agricultural industry and assist farmers throughout the growing season. I hope to one day be working in the field as an agronomist, troubleshooting issues farmers may face, such as diseases and pests. Even though I have a degree I know that I will continue to learn each day and with every season and I hope to be able to help increase our quantity and quality of our commodities with less acres.

What I enjoyed most about my experience at NC State was:
I enjoyed being able to meet new people and learn about different parts of the great state of North Carolina. Everyone has a different background and a different story to tell. Through my time at NC State, I have grown as an individual and become more social.

While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were: 
My fiance and family were my greatest supporters throughout my time at State. I had days where I was ready to throw in the towel because I was overwhelmed and ready to give up but they always pushed me to do my best. I completed my degree in two years, after transferring in from community college, when I was told that there was no way possible I would be finished by Spring 2020, I did everything I could to prove them wrong… look where I made it. Hard work and determination can go a long way.

Now that I have completed the program, I’m most looking forward to: 
I am looking most forward to working in the agricultural industry and hopefully leaving my mark on the industry and community, spreading ag awareness.
