There’s a popular line from one of my favorite country music songs that says, “If I could make a living out of loving you, I’d be a millionaire in a week or two.” I believe that this sums up what I would like to make a living off of: helping and loving others. My entire life, I have always loved helping people. As I grew older, I hungered for opportunities to help and love those around me. I joined my local FFA chapter my freshman year of high school due to my agricultural background and interest, and I dedicated myself to the last line of our FFA motto, “Living to Serve.” My favorite projects that I delved into involved food insecurity and the growing food crisis in America and around the world. One of my idols is Dr. Norman Borlaug, a man who literally made a living off of his passions. My favorite quote from Dr. Borlaug is “Food is the moral right of all who are born into this world.” If I could combine my love of people, my desire to help others, and my knowledge of agriculture, I would have the perfect job. If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would spend my hours cultivating a large community garden to help local food banks; I would devote days to traveling the world and teaching others about sustainable food production; I would hold the hungry and tell them that there is hope.
