Why I like 4-H: "4-H has taught me to 'make the best better.' I must always give 110 percent. I am learning-disabled, and reading and writing are skills I have trouble mastering. I have found there are many ways around my problem, and I can excel in many fields."

Plans: After high school, would like to be a forest ranger.
