Up to the age of 13 I lived in the middle of Geelong City, Victoria, yet somehow the country life style had called me onto greener pastures. I was 19 when I got my first farming job on a small Merino Stud in Wedderburn, Victoria and that was the spark to my now huge passion for farming.
I studied Agriculture in high school as there wasn't many courses that I was interested in. I was extremely lucky to attend one of the very few schools offering the program. I remember my teacher telling me that we were so important, we were the future of the industry, that we were a dying race. Kids and even young adults who are interested in Agriculture are a gift and need to be supported in every way they can!
My biggest passion is supporting those who don't have assess to Farming education, whether through their families or through Australia's School System which seems to fail almost anyone who wants to learn about the Agricultural Industry. No matter where you come from, which schools you attend or who you are, there is always a place for you in Agriculture.
