Greetings everyone! This summer has given me a lot of time for some “deep thinking” and “Robin-Time.” So when one of my housemates wrote this quote on her wipe-off board, I couldn’t help but think about what I’m doing to act in my own best interests and fulfill all my curiosities.
Organizations like Sigma Alpha help me to NEVER ask myself … “what if ___?”
Through this group of outstanding women, I’ve had the opportunity to travel. Washington, D.C., Kansas City, Indianapolis and Ft. Worth … and *HOPEFULLY* Virginia in the fall for my 2nd ever National Convention. I’ve also traveled internationally and got involved in activities across the K-State campus, because I wanted that experience during my college career … I’m also teaching a class in the Fall — more on that later, I promise.
Another thing that’s great is that Sigma Alpha offers so much more than just camaraderie during school, I’ve had real educational opportunities and probably more professional opportunities to interact with those in the agriculture industry.
I’m not trying to brag, but I’ve now got friends all across the agriculture industry and contacts across the nation. These aforementioned people have helped me land 3 internships and numerous scholarships … and one day, I’m positive these people will help me land a real world job! J I sincerely thank this organization for what they’ve given me … and I encourage all of you to fully take advantage. So pay attention to emails and things, that’s how you get involved and get noticed!
Do what George Elliot says and remember — “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
