Why did you pursue RFI’s Student Serviceship experience?
I am interested in living, working, and serving in rural Nebraskan communities. I see the importance of small towns and communities, especially to agricultural education. As a future agriculture teacher, I hope to develop working relationships with community members.

What do you hope to learn and how do you hope to be different from this experience?
I hope to learn more about important issues facing rural communities and how that may affect me as a future agriculture teacher.

What is your favorite aspect of Nebraska?
Nebraska Nice. I’ve traveled across the state for different reasons over the last few years and no matter where I go, I can always find helpful, friendly faces.
