I was raised to believe that nothing in life comes easy. If you want something that isn't given to you, then you must work for it. I understand that not everyone see's life this way, and that some people are given everything. This teaches people that they don't have to work and everything is supposed to go their way. I was raised that God and family are the most important things in life. I couldn't ask to be raised any better. I have been given a private education, travel sports, and the opportunity to meet many people. I am forever grateful to my parents for this. I now am able to pursue many careers that otherwise would not have been achievable. I can do all of this while still having a good agriculture backbone that teaches me hard work and respect will take me far in life.
