Participating in the Agricultural Communications Career Development Event (CDE) was one of the most instrumental parts of my high school career. This CDE catapulted me into a career path I never saw myself pursuing.
I have interned with the Office of Advancement for the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences as their communications intern, interned with Linde’s Livestock Photos, and currently work in the Office of Advancement as a student assistant and with ShowChampions Photography.
I also own SJ Photography where I photograph livestock, shows, events, weddings, families and seniors. None of these experiences would’ve been the same if I hadn’t been exposed to the material and framework of agricultural communication at this CDE.
Majoring in agricultural communication allows me to have the best of both worlds, all while continually improving my communication skills.
