I am from Glasscock County and I live in a small town called Garden City. I am an active 4-H member who also enjoys sports and academic competitions. My dad is a farmer, which put me, my brother, and 2 sisters spending long hours together in the barn and fields. This made me grow closer to my family and they have greatly impacted who I am today.  I love spending time outside and hanging out with my friends. I am just your typical country girl chasing her dreams to make everything and everyone around better.
