State Proficiency Winner in Agricultural Communications

I work for a Pearl Walthall who takes livestock photography. I have worked with her for five years now. Photography and livestock are my two loves and it is amazing to be doing them together. For FFA this is my SAE so I would record all of the times I would work with Pearl and any purchases I would make. Will this past year I filled out my proficiency application in Agricultural Communications for my livestock photography. I was really surprised when I was told that I had won my area contest with my proficiency. I then filled out the state application. This past weekend I got acknowledged on stage that I was the state winner for the Agricultural Communications proficiency. I would have never thought that I would make it that far. Now the next step is to fill out the national application and be in Kentucky in the fall. I will then see if my proficiency does well again. I am so thankful to have this opportunity to do this. I just want to thank my family, advisor, and everybody who supported me.
