I joined YFC because...

A friend took me along and I was instantly hooked. That was six years ago!

Being county chairman means so much...

It's a huge challenge but incredibly rewarding. It's fantastic to see our 200+ members constantly developing and achieving, while having fun too. I've learnt so much, met some amazing people and had some excellent training opportunities too in food hygiene, trailer test, club officer and public speaking.

One item every YFC member should have...

A club or county shirt they can wear proudly.

What many people don't know about me is...

I don’t come from a farming background. People assume Young Farmers are all farmers but we're not.

The last time I laughed out loud was...

I laugh constantly.

I don't leave home without...

My phone. It's the best way to keep up with all the YFC goings on, especially through Facebook and Twitter, plus a lot of the emails that come my way...

My proudest YFC moment...

Being named Cambridgeshire YFC Female Member of the Year at our AGM in November.

My last text was from...

My boss to myself and my colleague thanking us for our efforts with our Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops Audit and saying she's proud of us both.

YFC can carry on promoting themselves to the wider public..

By continuing to do and promote all the positive things we do such as fundraising for charities, work in the local community and opportunities we have for things such as training and travel. Social media is definitely key.

YFC has taught me...

So many things. I am more confident meeting new people and public speaking, my organisational and multi-tasking skills have improved, I have met a lot of people in the agricultural industry and made new friends too.

 

Young Farmers has also given me the confidence to change career develop myself in my workplace too.

The best life advice...

My mum told me if you want it, go get it and don't let anything get in your way.
