Review for National FFA Organization, Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The FFA is without a doubt the greatest youth organization in the world! My career started way back in 1985 when I was in 7th grade. I enjoyed all of the contests that the FFA had to compete in and learned the basics of public speaking and parlimentary procedure. I would never have imagined that just 7 short years later I would have the oppurtunity to be a VA State FFA Officer. I can honestly say that without the life skills that FFA taught me, I would never have had the courage to fulfill my duties as an officer. Fast forward to 2010, with the economy forcing me into a career change at almost 40 years old, I was able to get a job with the USDA. I know it is because of this wonderful organization, the interviews for officers and the public speaking skills allowed me to land a career without a college education. I know I can never give back to the FFA what it has given to me, but I am super excited to see my children as they start their FFA careers in the same chapter where I started mine!
