Supervised Agricultural Experience: 

I spend my time taking part in a Entrepreneurship SAE based on Agricultural Turf Grass Management. At a very young age, I became interested in owning my own business as well as the outdoors. My grandparents, mom, dad, and other family friends adored my interest and supported my journey in every way possible. Through my SAE, I have found a great deal of passion in entrepreneurship and lawn/property maintenance. Once I understood that these passions could lead me to many successes, I started to take time out of my schedule to look further into the aspect of business. I found out that most great business owners are people just like me who are outgoing, respectful, and smart. I started to meet with many small business owners with my SAE in mind the whole time taking mental and physical notes to better my Lawn Care. This SAE is not only setting me up for my future in business but also serves to be a stress reliever, as I find happiness in mowing grass and other services alike.
