My Little Voice…And How 4-H Has Helped Me Listen To It

Engage, ignore....engage, ignore....engage, ignore...

The options tumble through my mind like clothes in a dryer. On one hand, I couldn't be more excited to shout from the rooftops everything I love about agriculture and the people who feed our world.
