College of Agriculture and Innovation
Agriculture plays a big part in everyone’s life, whether or not they realize it. Being from Iowa I feel that I have a better knowledge on this impact it plays. Today we went to Iowa Soybean Association where we learned a tremendous amount about the world of agriculture and its importance to everyone in the world. I see agriculture as a huge part of my future, and I feel no matter what it will always be a part everyone’s life whether they actually are manufacturing or producing it or even eating the goods made by it. In this world it is very sad to say that world hunger will almost always be an issue especially with the exponential growth that is predicted to come. I feel that it is every fortunate person’s responsibility to help those who are less fortunate and may not have the food supply they need. This can be done in a ton of ways. I want to do many things starting now and continuing them into my future. Some of the things that I would like to do that would be involving agriculture in my future is to donate food, my time, and talents. I would actually really like to go to a third world country or even places in Iowa where the help is needed and serve and talk to the kids and families that are less fortunate. I feel this is only a small step/part of involving agriculture in my life but after hearing all the facts today I believe that it is something that will help and be appreciated more than I could ever imagine.
